|Energy Efficiency Description:|
The Demand Response program is one of the ways we are meeting the growing need for electricity in Saskatchewan in a cost-effective and environmentally responsible way.
The program provides SaskPower with a list of customers that can be called upon to reduce or shift their electrical use. This allows us to be more responsive to peak demands so that power is there when you need it. In return for shifting or reducing their power consumption, customers enrolled in the program receive financial compensation.
Another benefit of the program is the cost savings resulting from deferral of the construction of new power stations and associated transmission lines.
