20% of Saskatchewan's electricity generated from wind energy by 2030.
Of this total amount at least half should come from wind projects that are owned by individuals, farmers, communities and municipalities.
We are committed to ensuring that Saskatchewan communities derive maximum economic benefit from our province's world-class wind resource.
This is best achieved through the broad uptake of community-owned, widely distributed and appropriately sized wind-farm power projects.
The benefits of community-owned wind turbines are numerous and province-wide.
Retention of profits within communities, the creation of well-paid jobs, keeping the lid on power price hikes, better health outcomes, less reliance on fossil fuels, and a cleaner environment.
