Saskatoon Light and Power proposes $3.5 million solar power plant

The Canadian City of Saskatoon is looking at building a $3.5 million solar power plant in the southwest corner of the city.

In a fit to build up its solar power capacity, Saskatoon Light & Power is looking to add clean energy resources tp its electricity system by proposing a new solar plant.

According to CBC News, the city-owned utility is proposing a 1-megawatt solar power farm on the west-side of the city. The farm will be located between Circle Drive West and Dundonald Street, pending approval by a city council vote looking forward to a 2020 ready date.

If approved, the proposed solar farm could mitigate 15,893 tonnes of carbon emissions over a 25-year period or the equivalent of taking off 134 cars from the road.
