SaskPower eyes new natural gas plant sites as demand for power grows

9 Feb 07 Feb, 2017

SaskPower has identified four potential sites where a new natural gas plant could be built. The locations are in West Sherwood, just north of Regina, as well as Rowatt, Belle Plaine and Moose Jaw Industrial Park. The Crown corporation is also beginning a competitive process to buy up to 200 MW of wind power to add to Saskatchewan’s energy mix. SaskPower has hopes renewable sources will make up to 50 per cent of its power by 2030.
