The City of Saskatoon operates an electric utility providing electrical service to the area of Saskatoon which lies generally within the 1958 City boundary. Bulk power is purchased from the provincial crown utility, SaskPower, at 138,000 volts. Through a system of substations, distribution lines and transformers, the power is supplied to customers on demand at locations and at voltages appropriate to their needs. The Utility also maintains the street lighting system.

MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE
Saskatoon Light & Power's priority focus in 2011 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'S VISION
In 2011, 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.
As our Utility ages, so does our infrastructure. In order to maintain our high standards for service and reliability to our customers, we will be undertaking a Capital Development Planning Study. This study will guide our future strategic directions. We will also be implementing an Asset Management system to improve our maintenance operations.
In 2011, 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.
