With the latest announcement by the Federal Government, it seems a Carbon Tax in one form or the other is on its way to Saskatchewan and across Canada. Good, bad or no effect for the province, you be the judge and voice your opinion to the decision makers in our Provincial Government and Federal Government, hopefully a decision on the Carbon Tax that appeases both Governments can be made.
A quick Google search "Carbon Tax in Saskatchewan" provides references and opinions. What will be taxed the highest? Likely Coal Power, Natural Gas and Gasoline/Diesel fuels. Among many other services and commodities we utilize daily.
What can be done? Use less energy...seems to be the message of the Carbon Tax.
- Cut back on heating?...Hard to do in Saskatchewan. A 12+ Degree C home in -30 Degree C weather does not sound to comfortable.
- Eat Less?...We import food to Saskatchewan. We cant grow it at volumes we consume it in winter.
- Drive less?...How do you get to work, home, family, travel to doctor appointments? Saskatchewan has long distances between essential services required for daily life.
- Use less power? (Coal Power will be the hardest hit by a Carbon Tax). Thats an option, we can help. Contact us, see how solar can power your future.
