The way we’re generating power for customers isn’t practical anymore.

Right now, conventional coal makes up 32% of our power in Saskatchewan. But Federal regulations on greenhouse gas emissions are changing. This means we need to change the way we’ve been generating power.

Our Goal

We’re working to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by 40% from 2005 levels by 2030.

To get there, we need more renewable and lower-emitting generation in our power system. That’s why we’re looking at more generation options that’ll work with regulatory requirements.

Why Reducing Emissions Matters

Our daily power use makes a big impact on emissions. It threatens our:

  • health
  • natural resources
  • climate

Greenhouse gases can last hundreds of years in the atmosphere. This is why it’s important for us to do what we can now. Start by being efficient at home. Using less power not only can you save money, but also saves the environment.

Reaching an All-time High

In 2017, our emissions actually went up. To meet the growing need for power, we had to rely on all of our generation options:

  • coal
  • natural gas
  • hydro
  • wind
Moving towards 2030, we'll start replacing conventional coal with lower emitting generation. Because of this, we'll see our emissions drop.
