Reduce or eliminate the risk and inconvenience of working around overhead power lines.
SaskPower primary 25 kilovolt (kV) or 14.4 kV overhead power lines that are located within farmyards can be replaced with safe and convenient underground cables.
SaskPower will invest a major portion of the cost to bury or relocate overhead power lines in farmyards and immediate work areas. We will invest 75 per cent and all you pay is 25 per cent of the total construction cost to a maximum of $2000.
E34 farm rate customers are eligible for the Farmyard Power Line Relocation program.
How to Apply
- Determine whether or not you are eligible for the program.
- Call us at 1-888-757-6937 or apply online.
- Provide follow-up information to us (if this is required, we will contact you).
- Review your formal quote, which outlines the cost and details that apply to your situation.
If your farmyard is eligible, the overhead primary line will be installed underground using the most economical methods, without compromising SaskPower construction and safety standards. The existing overhead transformer pole will be replaced with a pad-mounted transformer. You will be responsible for burying any private power lines.
Pole transfer agreement
At your request, the existing overhead transformer power pole may be left for your convenience. If your request is approved, we will remove all hardware and you can assume ownership by signing a pole transfer agreement.
This popular program has a limited annual budget and all applications may not be approved in the same year in which you apply. Approved applications will be carried out subject to annual construction schedules on a first-come, first-paid, first-served basis.
