    If you lived in ON, I would definitely recommend it since there’s a subsidy that government offers here. But I’m quiet certain there are some incentives offered in Alberta too. Do a bit of research, or I could help you more on that if required.

    On the question of wind or solar, this really depends on may factors. Wind turbines can be a little bit noisy, so that could be of a problem for your neighbors. Moreover, you have to take into consideration all the objects close to your home (like trees) that could affect the wind dynamics before it get to you.

    On the hand, solar also has its pros and cons. As mentioned rightly above, the initial capital might be too much, but then again you can get a lot of support from different sources.

    Depending on technical factors, the size of the system (wind or solar) could be determined. Then you can find out how much you could cut on your electricity.

    Visit my blog on solar systems, and also ask me any questions you have about wind energy. http://www.solaredon.wordpress.com

    It depends on what local zoning and permiting will allow not to mention the reaction of your neighbors.

    Finally have you objectively looked at the costs versus savings? Many times it will take you ages to get your money back.
