The proposed project

The proponent has been accepted under SaskPower's Power Generation Partner Program to supply solar electricity to the power grid. The overall project consists of constructing a steel pile structure in the ground with steel racking above ground to accommodate fixed solar panels.  The panels are expected to be approximately 10 feet high and situated approximately 2 feet off the ground.  Site1 (NE 32-10-7 W2M) is 1.38 hectares in size containing 900 panels for 280kw of solar electricity output.  Site 2 (NE 1-10-8 W2M) is 2.98 hectares in size with 2,350 panels for 720kw of solar electricity output. The lifespan of the project is expected to be 30 years.  The initial SaskPower agreement is for 20 years.  Each site will have a chain link security fence placed around the project area.
