SOLAR ELECTRICITY NOW COSTS LESS
than traditional utility power in Saskatchewan
Saskatchewan Announces 20% Rebate for Renewable Energy
Solar power – the environmentally friendly solution to producing your own electricity – is now also the least expensive source of electricity for SaskPower customers.
For a typical home, solar power would cost 9 cents per kWh. The cost of electricity supplied by SaskPower is12 cents per kWh – this includes the GST which you do not pay on your own sun-generated power.
Solar equipment for grid-tied systems has a 25 year warranty. In 25 years the cost of coal power could easily quadruple – the cost of sunlight will not.
