SASKPOWER ENERACTION WILL HELP CUSTOMERS SAVE MONEY AND THE ENVIRONMENT
SaskPower Eneraction is a new portfolio of energy efficiency, conservation and load management programs to help Saskatchewan residents protect our environment and save money on their power bills. SaskPower Eneraction is a key component in helping advance the province's Green Strategy and Energy and Climate Change Plan.
"As our green and prosperous economy continues to grow, we will rely on SaskPower Eneraction programs to reduce electricity demand by 300 megawatts by 2017," Minister responsible for SaskPower John Nilson said. "SaskPower Eneraction is also a cornerstone of SaskPower's expanded Green Power Portfolio, which will help meet the province's growing electricity needs from 2010 to 2014. This will make Saskatchewan an even better place for families and our young people."
Over the next 12-18 months, SaskPower Eneraction will include:
"Even the best energy efficient technologies won't help our customers if they don't use them in their homes and businesses," SaskPower president and CEO Pat Youzwa said. "Educating customers on the facts around energy efficient appliances and conservation programs is the first step with SaskPower Eneraction, in order to promote real and lasting changes in how customers use electricity."
Approximately $2.4 million will be invested in SaskPower Eneraction programs in 2007, and approximately $7.1 million in 2008.
