The Small Power Producers Program accommodates customers who wish to generate up to 100 kilowatts (kW) of electricity for the purpose of offsetting power that would otherwise be purchased from SaskPower or for selling all of the power generated to SaskPower.

At the beginning of the application process, applicants need to choose between one of two options: Sell all of the power produced to SaskPower, or sell the excess of is not used.

The 2012 program price that SaskPower will pay for electricity is 9.802 $/kWh. This 2012 price will escalate at two per cent per year thereafter. Purchase rates do not differ between eligible generation technologies. All contracts will be honored in accordance with the pricing regime in the signed contract, even if the program is discontinued.

Electricity banking services are not provided under this policy (see SaskPower Net Metering Program to bank electricity).
