SaskPower Kicks Off 2016 Power to Grow Tour
June 16, 2016
First stop: Sidewalk Days in Moose Jaw
SaskPower is balancing renewal of our aging electrical system while meeting customers' growing demand for power. At the same time, we're working towards our goal of up to 50 per cent renewable electricity in our power generation mix by 2030.
The interactive Power to Grow experience is touring the province this year with an updated look and feel. Go for a spin on our generation bike to see how much energy you can produce. See how the power choices made in your home affect the demand on the system and tips to save on your power bill. Learn about renewable power options: wind, solar, hydro, biomass and geothermal — and how we'll use them in the future.
"We want to help our customers understand the challenge we are facing in a growing Saskatchewan and our plans to address those challenges," says Guy Bruce, SaskPower Vice-President, Planning, Environment and Sustainable Development. "People who visit the Power to Grow experience can learn about Saskatchewan's growing need for power, how power is made, how power gets to you, renewable power sources and how SaskPower is meeting these challenges."
The tour will be making its first stop in Moose Jaw today at Sidewalk Days. The Power to Grow experience will be set up on Main Street/Hochelaga Street East from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m.
"Since launching this experience in 2014, we've spoken with approximately 70,000 residents on 227 tour stops in over 100 Saskatchewan communities," says Bruce. "We hope this year's tour focus — how we generate power — will spark interest and dialogue with our customers around the role they play."
