Province’s first Power Generation project delivering renewable solar power to Sask.

SaskPower says the first Power Generation Partner Program project is in operation.
The PGPP allows residents to produce electricity in a renewable way or by carbon neutral non-renewable generation method and sell it back to the province. The first PGPP program is set up outside of Preeceville.
Spokesperson Joel Cherry says having the first PGPP system up and running is an important milestone.
“We have another one that’s going to be up and running right away as well, and we’re looking forward to getting more and more projects up and running overall,” said Cherry. “Through the course of the program, we’re going to add up to 105- megawatts of renewable and carbon-neutral non-renewable power to the grid, which is a good step towards reaching our carbon emissions targets.”
SaskPower is still taking applicants for their third and final PGPP project. Bookings are being taken until October.
