We are installing conduit in partnership with SaskTel and updating our existing cables throughout the province.
The estimated cost of this 2020-21 project is just over $17 million. This includes:
- 100 km of conduit installation

Minimizing the Impact to You
To safely complete this work, we’ll need to shut the power off. Outages could last up to 8 hours depending on the work involved.
If you’re impacted by this work, we’ll let you know. You’ll either get a notice in your mail box or receive a visit from a SaskPower contractor.
There will also be construction equipment on site, construction noise and partial road restrictions in certain cases.
Respecting the Local Environment
No impact to the local environment is expected.
Benefits to Local Communities
We all want power when we need it. This work will help with reliability now and into the future.
