Saskatoon Light & Power's priority focus will be to continue our record of innovation through a pattern of disciplined and cost-conscious investments in our infrastructure. We will continue to develop green energy projects in order to meet our commitment to the environment while maximizing our return on investment to the City of Saskatoon.



Saskatoon Light & Power will begin development of a new Green Energy Park. The vision for this park is to showcase our alternative energy projects in a way that provides educational opportunities for the public and to promote energy conservation and renewable energy solutions. Projects underway include a Landfill Gas Collection System and Power Generator, and a Turbo-Expander being development in conjunction with SaskEnergy. Our Utility is also exploring the potential for other future projects at this location. One other key project being studied is a low-impact hydropower station to be located at the Saskatoon Weir located on the South Saskatchewan river.

We will also be demonstrating our environmental leadership through the use of LED lighting in one of the City's new neighbourhoods. This large scale pilot project will showcase this energy efficient technology and will be used to verify the energy savings that can be achieved.

Saskatoon Light & Power will also continue to focus on developing its staff through our apprenticeship program. This program is an important succession planning initiative to meet our future staffing needs. This will also provide opportunities for our current staff to grow within the Utility to meet their career goals.



One of the Utility's strategic directions is to harness and promote the use of renewable energy sources thereby reducing our reliance on fossil fuels for energy generation.

Provide staff training and continued promotion of a safe workplace by personal commitment by all staff.

Implementation of an Asset Management System in order to improve maintenance efficiencies and effectiveness.

Succession planning through our continued focus on the apprenticeship program.
