For immediate release
Many existing coal-fired power stations in Saskatchewan are near the end of their useful life. Thus, between now and 2020 SaskPower will make crucial decisions concerning the province’s electricity future.
The Saskatchewan Environmental Society (SES) is urging SaskPower to make a priority of permanently closing each of its coal-fired power plants at or slightly before the end of their scheduled operating lifetime, and replacing them with renewable sources of electricity, or with other low carbon emitting sources of electricity generation.
