Chad Townsend, Banff's environmental co-ordinator, says anyone who puts up solar panels will get money back from the town.
Townsend a quarterly cheque will be sent out to offset the cost of a solar system.
The payment will be based on how much energy is generated and fed into the grid.
Initial cash for the project is coming from a rate rider the town charges utility companies for power lines under streets and sidewalks.
