Make Your Own Power
Federal Tax Incentive for Clean Energy Equipment
Businesses can also use a federal tax incentive to fully expense clean energy generation and energy efficiency equipment. This means a CCA rate of 100% and the abolishment of the first-year rule.
SaskPower & Utility Programs
With solar power you’re locking in your energy costs, and providing yourself with peace of mind as utility prices increase. In the last three decades, utility rates have gone up an average of 6%, meaning your savings will continue to grow. SaskPower has a goal to reduce emissions by 40% from 2005 levels by 2030.
Net Metering Program
SaskPower, Saskatoon Light & Power, Swift Current Light & Power all participate in a Net Metering program. This program allows home owners and farmers to make their own power and save money while doing it. When you make your own power you don’t have to buy as much from SaskPower and if you make too much you’ll get credit that carry over to your next month’s bill.
Power Generation Partner Program
SaskPower’s Power Generation Partner Program allows you to make power and then sell it back to them. Solar generation projects must be 100 kW up to and including 1 MW. You can submit applications for more than one project but the total power generated from all renewable projects must be 1 MW or less. Visit SaskPower’s website through the link below to learn more about program costs, energy prices and technical requirements.
