DYK #WindEnergy will make up 30% of Saskatchewan's electricity generating capacity by 2030.

DYK #WindEnergy will make up 30% of Saskatchewan's electricity generating capacity by 2030.

Growing Saskatchewan’s Renewable Energy Portfolio Saskatchewan has a tremendous untapped wind energy resource, a fact the provincial government recognized in 2015 when it unveiled a plan to have wind turbines make up 30 per cent of the province’s electricity generating capacity by 2030. Meeting the target will make Saskatchewan a wind energy leader in Canada. The province currently has 221 MW of installed wind energy capacity, about five per cent of the total generation fleet. Increasing that to 30 per cent means Saskatchewan will have to add about 1,600 MW of new wind energy to its grid over the next 15 years. Wind energy currently supplies only about three per cent of Saskatchewan’s electricity needs, a number that will rise to 20 per cent by 2030. The province’s plan is driven by the recognition that wind energy is a low-cost, low-carbon way to meet demand and diversify...
