Saskatchewan renewables compared with the United Kingdom: 2006-2015

 

The UK has a population density which is more than 150 times greater than Saskatchewan's.  (263 people per square kilometre vs. Saskatchewan's 1.73).  Despite a comparable wind resource and an inferior solar and hydro resource, the UK nonetheless now generates 24.7 percent of their electricity from renewables (vs. 17.4 percent in Saskatchewan).
