SaskPower of Canada has selected 13 new environmentally preferred power projects through its second annual Green Options (GO) Partners Programme.

Rob Norris, Minister Responsible for SaskPower, said: “This year, SaskPower received over 300 applications. The 13 projects selected will add 46 MW of green electricity to the grid, helping to meet Saskatchewan’s growing need for power with no additional greenhouse gas emissions.”

Robert Watson, President and CEO of SaskPower, said the projects selected represent a variety of locations and types of technology, including wind, hydro, flare gas and geothermal, to generate clean electricity. One project will use methane gas from a landfill in Saskatoon. These projects are an important part of our plan to ensure we continue to have a diverse supply mix to meet the province’s power needs.”

SaskPower will design and price the power lines needed to connect the projects to the grid,  and sign power purchase agreements with each IPP.
