    Wind power production in Saskatchewan went into negative territory

    January 19, 2023 - Small Dead Animals


      Turns out there’s a new development out of the story that took place on Monday.

      Justin Trudeau on Monday didn’t think much of Saskatchewan’s clean energy projects.

      On that very day, characterized by fog throughout much of southern Saskatchewan (where the wind turbines are located), SaskPower’s total wind power generation fell to “-1 megawatt,” as in negative one megawatt, according to the Crown corporation’s Where Does Your Power Come From web page. This is the lowest number Pipeline Online has seen since the page went online in September, 2022. It’s also an average throughout the entire day, not just at a particular moment.

      According to SaskPower, “The turbines were iced up and unable to produce. The -1 megawatt was load to service the facilities.”

      Saskatchewan has 617 megawatts of installed grid-scale wind power generation.

      Also, SaskPower is now paying people extra just to stay in Coronach instead of walking away early from the doomed coal plant.
