Community scale projects can be different sizes and different technologies depending on the jurisdiction. In Saskatchewan, community-scale projects can be 100 kW or smaller under the Net-Metering program or 100kW – 1 MW under the Power Generation Partner Program. In Alberta, community-scale projects can be net-metered or can by 5 MW or smaller under the micro-generation program. Community-scale projects are typically defined as smaller than 1 MW where the purpose of the project is to reduce the consumption and electrical costs for a residential home, or community building. Other community-scale projects can include biomass combined heat and power projects at the district heating scale or the building scale. Geothermal (or geoexchange) for heating and cooling is also considered a community-scale project. Community-scale projects can also include energy efficiency and conservation opportunities through retrofits, building energy management systems, storage and behavioural changes. FNPA is always eager to start with energy efficiency and conservation prior to implementing net-metered or community-scale projects.
