We’re replacing 17 km of underground cables throughout the province.
Why we’re doing it
The cables we’re replacing are no longer working properly. They have reached their end of useful life. Updating these cables will help bring you reliable, safe power.
We’re in year 4 of 7 of this project and have updated 85 km for $10 million so far.

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.
