Cowessess First Nation unveils new solar site alongside wind power site – CTV

October 10, 2018

Saskatchewan is now home to a utility-scale solar and wind power site. The Cowessess First Nation unveiled the new solar energy site, alongside the existing wind power site on reserve land two kilometres east of Regina on Wednesday.

“Cowessess is proud to extend its leadership in Saskatchewan renewable energy development with its commissioning of this solar project.” Cowessess Chief Cadmus Delorme said in a written release. “This project will increase Cowessess capacity as our Nation looks to expand our business interests in areas of energy development, commercial land development and healthcare.”

The new 340kw solar power system is part of the existing 20-year power purchase agreement Cowessess has with SaskPower. An additional 57kw solar capacity system has also been installed to offset power usage at the site office and project site.
