SaskPower Approves 38 Customer Self-generation Projects

February 15, 2019

SaskPower has approved the first selection of customer projects that will generate and sell power to the Company as part of the new Power Generation Partner Program (PGPP).

“Taking steps to promote renewable and carbon-neutral projects is another clear sign that Saskatchewan takes the challenges of climate change seriously,” said the Honourable Dustin Duncan, Minister Responsible for SaskPower. “The PGPP aligns with Saskatchewan’s climate change plan, Prairie Resilience, by incentivizing customers to reduce carbon emissions and adding significant amounts of clean power to the grid.”

The PGPP, announced in fall 2018, accepted 10 megawatts (MW) of renewable solar generation and 25 MW of carbon neutral non-renewable generation, such as flare gas.  It is a two-year program, with the option to extend it to three. This program is the result of extensive consultations with both the solar and oil and gas industries.

“SaskPower has committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 40 per cent over 2005 levels by 2030, and the PGPP is one element that will help us reach that target,” said Mike Marsh, President and CEO of SaskPower. “The strong interest this program received from a wide variety of applicants is encouraging and I thank all applicants for their efforts. We look forward to adding additional projects in the future.”

The PGPP has maximum allowable project sizes of 1 MW for renewable projects, and 5 MW for carbon neutral non-renewable technologies. Applications will continue to be accepted on an annual basis.
