SaskPower signs 20 year agreement with the States to buy or sell up to 650 megawatts

One of the largest questions facing Saskatchewan’s economy is where will we be getting our electrical power in the next 10 years? SaskPower is looking down the barrel of the federally-mandated retirement of conventional coal-fired power by the end of 2029, and it’s going to take until at least 2032 to have any sort of nuclear power in place. Even then, that would only be one or two reactors, not nearly enough to replace our coal fleet, let alone meet the increased demand from electric vehicles.
