Net Metering

Saskatchewan residents and businesses can generate their own power to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and save money.

The Government of Saskatchewan's net metering program provides SaskPower customers with the opportunity to generate up to 100 kilowatts of power, using an eligible energy resource, to offset their own power use.

The provincial government will continue to offer a one-time rebate equivalent to 20 per cent of equipment and installation costs to a maximum payment of $20,000.

Starting April 1, the Ministry of Environment is responsible for issuing rebates to net metering customers as part of the province's comprehensive Prairie Resilience climate change strategy. Net metering complements Saskatchewan's Prairie Resilience climate change strategy by providing an incentive to increase the amount of renewable energy in the province and reduce emissions.

The rebate is calculated at $0.61 per watt of installed generating capacity, which is equivalent to 20 per cent of the average purchase and installation cost of systems installed in the past year.

Visit SaskPower's net metering site to get started on your power project application.
