About the Solar Energy Society of Alberta

“The Solar Energy Society of Alberta is the trusted community resource for the widespread understanding and use of solar energy in Alberta.”

The Solar Energy Society of Alberta (SESA) was formed in 1976 as the Northern Alberta Chapter of the Solar Energy Society of Canada Inc. (SESCI-NAC) to advance the awareness, understanding and use of solar energy as well as other renewable energy and conservation technologies. We are located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Our membership comes from many walks of life; from educators and engineers to solar installers and homeowners. The only real requirement is an interest in alternative ways of thinking about our energy use.

The Solar Energy Society of Alberta is a non-profit, educational organization, which serves as a resource for government, educational institutions and the public at large. To this end SESA has partnered with Grant MacEwan University, the University of Alberta, the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology, the Telus World of Science, the City of Edmonton, the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues, the Electrical Industry Training Centre, the Canadian Solar Industries Association and a number of Alberta elementary and high schools.

SESA holds seminars, workshops, classes, exhibits and public demonstrations and provides a solar technology demonstration trailer for public events in the Northern Alberta area.

SESA recently received Alberta's highest environmental honor: the 2014 Emerald Award in the coveted Community Group & Nonprofit Association category. Watch the video below:
