SaskPower says it will rely on power generated by wind to achieve its goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
The power company plans to reduce emissions by 40 per cent from 2005 levels by 2030. By that year, it wants to have added an additional 1,600 megawatts of wind power.
To put that into perspective, at 2:15 p.m. CST on Wednesday the entire province was using 2,700 megawatts. That means the 1,600 megawatts of wind would cover about 60 per cent of the power needs at that moment.
