The largest solar energy project in Canada has received provincial approval and the company hopes to start construction in southern Alberta next year. 

“It will be, by far, the largest solar energy project in Canada and one of the largest in the world,” said Dan Balaban, president and CEO of Greengate, the Calgary-based company behind the array. 

He says the project in Vulcan County will include 1.5 million solar panels that will provide enough energy — 400 megawatts — to power 100,000 homes.
