Net Metering Program Capacity Reached – Program Under Review

We have reached the 16-megawatt (MW) capacity limit for the Net Metering Program. We’re not accepting applications at this time. The program is undergoing a review. New applications won’t be accepted until that review is complete.

Make your own power and save money with our Net Metering program.

You won't have to buy as much power from us when you're making your own. And if you make too much you'll get credits. These will carry over to your next month's bill (for up to 3 years).

Your Energy Options

 

System Size

Your project can be up to 100 kw (dc). Keep in mind, when building your system, that it's the right size. If you go too big you'll lose credits.

Start by:

  1. Making your home energy efficient. Get your money’s worth from your system.
  2. Figuring out the size and cost of a system. Talk to a few suppliers to give you quotes.
  3. Tracking your monthly power use by signing up for an online account.

Government of Saskatchewan Rebate

The Government of Saskatchewan offers a one-time rebate to help cover some costs. The rebate is $0.61 per watt, which works out to about 20% of your total system costs. The maximum rebate is $20,000.

For example: If you install a 8.5 kW system, your rebate would be $5,185.

To get the rebate, you must have:

  • your system installed
  • an electrical inspection
  • a bi-directional meter installed

Once you've got all this, you can send in a copy of your receipts. Original invoices won't be returned.

Rebates are issued directly to customers. Leased equipment isn't eligible for the rebate.

To apply for the Government of Saskatchewan rebate, complete this form and send it to: customergeneration@saskpower.com.
