SaskPower to take ‘weeks, not months’ for new solar power plan after net metering program caps

It will take “weeks, not months” for SaskPower to come up with a new plan to address the high demand for solar power from its customers.

Last week, the Crown said its net metering program had reached the 16-megawatt capacity two years ahead of schedule.

Minister Responsible for SaskPower Dustin Duncan addressed reporters on Monday to discuss how net metering will work going forward. He said the program has seen significant year-over-year growth and that a new plan will be available soon.

“We want to give certainty to the industry that has responded in a very big way to allow customers to make their own power,” he said.
