ABSTRACT
The article reports on the performance of solar electric power on the communities in Alberta. It is stated that solar photovoltaic (PV) power will produce no pollutants or emissions of greenhouse gases. The solar modules have improved their efficiency from 14% to 17% compared with 30% to 40% for electricity that is generated by fossil fuels. Further, the said improvement will reduce the size and number of PV solar modules that is needed to produce same amount of power to cut the costs.
