Solar In Regina, Sask - Is phasing out coal power possible?

November 24, 2016

There has been much recent discussion on renewable energy, carbon capture etc. and with the latest Federal Gov. news release stating the phase out of coal power in Canada by 2030, debates and opinions for and against the phase out of coal power have been offered in the media from various creditable sources across Canada.

 

Can it be done in Sask? Whats the cost to the economy? Whats the advantage to our environment? Below are several articles that will give perspective on the subject.

 

Regardless of how Saskatchewan proceeds with coal phase out, solar power, carbon capture, purchasing out of province clean power, (Manitoba Hydro power) negotiating "equivalency agreements" with the Federal Gov. as other coal power generation provinces have, (We) the rate payers are going to see price increases for power grid upgrades and large provincial investments.
