Changes to Net Metering Program Impact Green Energy Efforts of Saskatchewan Hometowns

Oct 17, 2019

The Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association (SUMA) is concerned that changes to Saskatchewan’s net metering program will impact hometowns building resilience to climate change through alternative energy sources.

Saskatchewan’s net metering program will be reactivated on November 1. However, unlike the previous program, there will be no rebate for equipment or installation costs, and excess power will be credited at 7.5 cents per kilowatt hour, down from 14 cents per kilowatt hour.
