SaskPower engages customers on the future of the provincial power grid –

SaskPower is seeking feedback from residents as they search for cleaner, greener and more innovative energy sources.

Residents can provide feedback through in-person sessions or a new online tool, SaskPower spokesperson Scott McGregor explains.

“So to keep our electricity reliable and cost effective, we’re going to be evaluating and developing a whole range of options to power the future and we want to hear from Saskatchewan about their thoughts, their concerns, their questions and that’s why engaged the customers about it.”

While there is a new online tool for providing feedback, McGregor says they will also be planning in-person sessions over the coming weeks and months in various communities and municipalities.

McGregor outlines the type of feedback they are looking for.

“We want to know from our customers what’s important to them. If it’s about reducing emissions, if it’s important, if reliability is important, safety and things like that. We’re looking to get as much views of our customers than humanly possible as we design our future power system.”

McGregor adds that the sessions will also help educate customers about where SaskPower is, the constraints they face and the opportunities that exist in the future.

SaskPower is currently on track to reduce its emissions by 50% from 2005 levels while achieving 0 net greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 or earlier.
