Soaking Up the Sun at Our Town Border Station in South Regina As part of our commitment to reduce emissions, we converted our town border station in south Regina to generate solar power. Increasing the use of renewable electricity is one of the priority areas in our roadmap to reduce emissions from operations by 35 per cent by 2030. When the sun is shining, the 176 solar panels at the Regina station will capture enough solar energy to power the station and generate excess energy to put onto the province’s power grid. During times with little-to-no sunshine, the station will use power from the grid through a net metering agreement with SaskPower. Over the course of a year, the station’s net electrical usage from the grid is expected to balance out to zero. The solar system has a total generation capacity of nearly 80,000 watts, which is enough to power the station’s lighting and electric heat, as well as the equipment that controls the station’s odourization and distribution of natural gas to homes and businesses in Regina. This station is the first of several of our facilities across Saskatchewan that will be converted over the next seven years. In 2023-24, work will begin on the installation of solar systems at three additional SaskEnergy offices and facilities — all of which will be designed to offset annual power usage.
