July 4, 2018 — SaskPower recently announced that Saturn Power is the successful proponent for Saskatchewan’s first utility-scale solar power project.

SaskPower and Saturn Power have signed a 20-year power purchase agreement for the 10MW of solar power. The project will be located in the RM of Coulee, east of Swift Current, Sask. The facility, which will be called the Highfield Solar Project, is expected to be in service as early as the end of 2019.

“This is an important project for SaskPower and the people of this province and I’d like to congratulate everyone at Saturn Power on their successful proposal,” said Mike Marsh, president and CEO, SaskPower. “SaskPower has set a goal of greatly increasing our renewable generation capacity by 2030. Saskatchewan people can expect to see more announcements like this in the years to come as we work towards that commitment.”

The competitive process for this project got underway in 2016. During the request for proposals process, SaskPower evaluated 16 proposals from 12 of the 34 pre-qualified proponents. SaskPower will now start preparing for the next competitive process for an additional 10 MW project.
