TELUS Spark Solar Carport Grand Opening

April 17, 2023

CANA is excited to see the grand opening of the solar carport take place this coming weekend. As the builder of the original TELUS Spark Science Centre, we were thrilled to take on this newest initiative for the facility to improve the sustainability of a first-class learning centre.

The carport consists of 2,292 high-efficiency solar panels spanning more than 62,430 ft² and was built specifically for northern climates. It will produce an estimated 1.2 million kilowatt hours annually — that's enough electricity to power 180 Calgary homes and prevents approximately 426 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions.
