Wind turbines use giant fan-like blades to generate electricity when the weather conditions are right. Wind turbines don’t work well when there’s no wind, too much wind (for safety reasons) or when it’s too cold.

""

Wind power is generated using giant fan-like blades to turn turbines, creating power.

""

Wind is intermittent and can’t generate power when it’s too cold or too windy.

Reliability

Low reliability

Like solar power, wind power is an unreliable energy source because the wind must be blowing to create power. No wind, no power!

Cost

Low cost rating

Wind production is a cost-effective power source.

Impact

Low environmental impact

Producing no emissions, this is an environmentally friendly renewable resource.

Now

""
SaskPower’s generating capacity from wind is about five per cent.

Future

""
Wind will grow to 30 per cent by 2030, significantly reducing SaskPower’s greenhouse gas emissions.
