CCPA report sets renewable targets for Saskatchewan

The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) released a report yesterday entitled “Transforming Saskatchewan’s Electrical Future: The Public Policies Needed to Build a Renewable Energy Society in Saskatchewan.” The report calls on Saskatchewan to phase out its fleet of coal-fired electrical generating stations and use wind, solar, small-scale hydro and biomass to transform Saskatchewan into a renewable energy leader.

The CCPA report recommends that the province set several targets, including:

- Saskatchewan should supply at least 40 per cent of its electricity needs from renewable energy sources by 2020, which would more than double the contribution of renewable electricity to the province's grid by the end of the decade;
- By 2018, SaskPower should install 600 megawatts (MW) of wind power, 125 MW of small-scale hydro and 125 MW of biomass generation;
- Coal-fired power plants should be gradually phased out in Saskatchewan. Over the next eight years. 400 MW of coal-fired power production could be shut down.

Saskatchewan is currently doubling the wind power capacity in the province right now and is going from 4.7 percent to 8.5 percent of total capacity by 2015 which will be one of the highest percentages of wind power of any North American jurisdiction.
