Saskatchewan is a Canadian province that borders the United States to the south. Grassland covers its southern plains, and to the north are the rugged rock of the Canadian Shield plateau, coniferous forests, rivers and lakes.

The government of Canada is shelling out approximately $948,000 in funding to support solar projects in the North.

The said projects will be located in two Saskatchewan First Nation communities: the Cowessess First Nation and the Muskoday First Nation.

The 320-kilowatt Cowessess project, which is receiving approximately $633,000 in funding, will generate over 460 megawatt-hours of renewable energy annually through SaskPower’s Net Metering Program, and across five community sites.

The 190-kilowatt Muskoday First Nation project, which is receiving approximately $315,000, will generate over 200 megawatt-hours of renewable energy annually across three prominent community-owned buildings.
