Solar power uses panels to capture and store energy from the sun – it’s one of the cleanest technologies out there but, of course, it only works when the sun is shining. Solar is still relatively expensive compared to other generation options but the cost is coming down as the technology evolves.

""

Solar power is generated using panels that converts energy from the sun.

""

Solar power generation depends on the intensity of sunlight, and cannot be captured at night.

Reliability

Low reliability

This is an unreliable energy source as you can only capture sunlight when the sun is shining.

Cost

High cost rating

Solar panels are very expensive, but the price is coming down as this technology evolves.

Impact

Low environmental impact

With zero emissions, solar energy has little to no impact on the environment.

Now

""
About 400 homes and businesses in Saskatchewan use solar power as a secondary supply source.

Future

""
Solar power alone isn’t enough for our province, but we’re researching how to incorporate more.
