Making History

The SES Solar Co-operative Ltd. is the first co-op of its kind in Saskatchewan. Southern Saskatchewan has an outstanding solar resource, with more hours of sunlight than anywhere else in Canada. Saskatoon, Saskatchewan sees an average of 2267 hours of bright sunshine every year. It is time to start utilizing that renewable resource in the production of electricity. The goals of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and building a renewable energy future for Saskatchewan need to become a top priority in the province's communities. That is why it is not only important to launch Saskatchewan’s first solar power co-operative, but to replicate it many times over in other communities across the province! Based out of Saskatoon, the SES Solar Co-operative Ltd. has carefully developed a legal structure, a set of bylaws, and a business model that can then be followed – and modified as needed by future renewable power co-operatives. Our goal is to ultimately see dozens of renewable power co-operatives across our province.

Why solar?

Coal continues to dominate Saskatchewan's electricity grid, with over half of the province's electricity coming from coal. Carbon dioxide released from coal burning will remain in the atmosphere for at least 100 years. Although Saskatchewan is home to only 3% of Canada's population, the province is responsible for 10% of the country's greenhouse gas emissions.
