An innovative partnership between SES Solar Co-operative, local building owner Montgomery Agencies Ltd. and 4 private businesses at the Haskamp Street site. They receive the majority of their electricity from a near emissions-free solar energy source. The rooftop system consists of 80 environmentally-friendly 280 watt solar panels for a total of 22.4 kilowatts of peak electricity production installed by MiEnergy of Saskatoon.
The SES Solar Co-operative Ltd. is the first co-op of its kind in Saskatchewan. Southern Saskatchewan has an outstanding solar resource, with more hours of sunlight than anywhere else in Canada. Saskatoon, Saskatchewan sees an average of 2267 hours of bright sunshine every year. It is time to start utilizing that renewable resource in the production of electricity. The goals of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and building a renewable energy future for Saskatchewan need to become a top priority in the province's communities. That is why it is not only important to launch Saskatchewan’s first solar power co-operative, but to replicate it many times over in other communities across the province! Based out of Saskatoon, the SES Solar Co-operative Ltd. has carefully developed a legal structure, a set of bylaws, and a business model that can then be followed – and modified as needed – by future renewable power co-operatives. Our goal is to ultimately see dozens of renewable power co-operatives across our province.
Coal continues to dominate Saskatchewan's electricity grid, with over half of the province's electricity coming from coal. Carbon dioxide released from coal burning will remain in the atmosphere for at least 100 years. Although Saskatchewan is home to only 3% of Canada's population, the province is responsible for 10% of the country's greenhouse gas emissions.
