SaskPower Tries Utility Solar Finally

19 years after their first foray into utility solar testing at the Science Centre with a small solar array, SaskPower is finally planning to put small-scale grid solar into production. Near the end of this year, SPC may end renewable energy incentives it has already rolled back since the beginning of this decade.

The CBC story leaves out the fact that more than 10 times the fossil fuel generation is going online in 2019 near Swift Current for SaskPower, while SPC maintains they’re trying to reach 50% renewables in only 12 years. It’s not clear how planning to add more fossils than renewables gets us closer to that long term goal, since we already have fewer than 1% in solar, and about 3% in wind.
