The SES Solar Co-op is excited to announce its 2020 Share Offering!
Thanks to the ongoing support of our members, the SES Solar Co-op has played a significant role in the growing movement in Saskatchewan towards a renewable energy tipping point. In this sunny province, we have the greatest solar resource in the country, providing us with a world-class opportunity to build resilience into our energy infrastructure for ourselves and future generations.
As the first renewable energy co-operative in Saskatchewan, we are led by a board of sustainable energy engineers, business leaders and community builders. We conduct stringent research on power production to ensure continued and improved quality and efficiency for our solar projects, and make data-driven decisions on behalf of our shareholders.
Solar technology is now rivalling its non-renewable counterparts. By harnessing the potential of solar, our projects create a sustainable energy source, offset greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuel generated electricity, and provide a return on investment – all at the same time.
At this time, we are faced with a truly visionary opportunity here in Saskatchewan: CNH Industrial has partnered with us for our largest installation to date. We are now selling shares for the installation of approximately 1200 solar panels which will contribute to the power needed on the CNH Industrial site on 71st street in Saskatoon. This follows our six successful installations at: The Two Twenty Coworking Space, Saskatoon Landfill Gas Generation Energy Project, Haskamp Street site, Radiance Cohousing for Renewable Rides, Wolf Willow Cohousing, and Ness Creek festival site.
By becoming a member in the SES Solar Co-op, you’re directly contributing to the expansion of renewable energy development in Saskatchewan.

Our 6th & newest project:
Wolf Willow Co-housing
530 Avenue J South in Saskatoon
SES Solar Co-op Ltd. has 120 solar panels on the rooftop with a generating capacity of 36 kilowatts - installed by Rock Paper Sun Ltd. of Saskatoon. Click here for more details
Our 5th project:
Ness Creek Solar Arrays
Ness Creek Site
With a generating capacity of 45 kilowatts from 132 panels - installed by MiEnergy of Saskatoon. In 2019 this installation produced 44,667 kilowatt hours of electricity, effectively reducing associated greenhouse gas emissions by about 26 tonnes (carbon dioxide equivalent).

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 utilize 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. That is why it is not only important to be Saskatchewan’s first solar power co-operative, but to support the development of renewable energy co-operatives 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 energy co-operatives. Our goal is to ultimately see dozens of renewable energy co-operatives across our province.
