Pesakastew Solar Project 

Solar Project

Background

The Pesâkâstêw Solar Project is a 10 MW solar farm in development in the Rural Municipality of Weyburn, Saskatchewan, approximately 4 km southwest of the city of Weyburn on land with low environmental sensitivity. The project is set to be operational by 2020, supplying clean energy to the Saskatchewan electrical grid. 

This project will require approximately 85-100 acres (34-41 ha) of land and will connect directly to the SaskPower substation adjacent to the site. The project will be able to provide electricity to approximately 2,400 homes and, in doing so, will displace 18,860 tonnes of CO2 equivalent annually.
