SaskPower Seeking Applications for Year Three of Power Generation Partner Program

June 29, 2020

SaskPower is once again providing an opportunity for customers who want to generate power and sell it back to the company. The Power Generation Partner Program (PGPP) will accept applications for the third and final year of the program from Oct 22 to Oct 30, 2020. 

“Year three of PGPP builds on the positive feedback we have received from customers participating in year one and year two of the program,” said Shawn Schmidt, SaskPower’s Vice-President of Distribution and Customer Services. “At the completion of the program, there will be up to 105 megawatts of customer-generated power added to the grid. This will support SaskPower’s goal of reducing carbon emissions to at least 40 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030 and provide an opportunity for our oil and gas customers to reduce their emissions.”

The PGPP has an annual cap of 10 MW per year for renewable technologies and 25 MW per year for carbon neutral non-renewable technologies. Eligible renewable technologies include solar, biomass, biogas, hydro and geothermal, with projects ranging from 100 kW up to 1 MW. Eligible carbon neutral technologies include flare gas and waste heat recovery, with projects ranging from 100 kW up to 5 MW.

PGPP was originally approved for two years with an optional third year. This is the third and final year of the program. 

“While there is currently no plan to replace this program, we anticipate that customer generation will continue to play a role in our power generation mix, and the many learnings from delivering PGPP will be beneficial for the development of any future programs,” Schmidt said.

Potential applicants must book a pre-application meeting prior to October 2, 2020 to be eligible to apply. More information about the PGPP can be found here.
