The recommendations of Prebble's report include:

  • A legislated Renewable Energy and Conservation Portfolio Standard for the electricity sector;
  • Major investments in conservation initiatives, including an expanded EnergyShare conservation program;
  • An important role for large scale wind power;
  • Net metering for small scale producers of green electricity;
  • The promotion of higher building energy efficiency standards; and
  • An expanded role for the Office of Energy Conservation.

In the 2005 Speech from the Throne, the Premier and your provincial government members committed that by the third decade of this century, one-third of the energy needs of Saskatchewan people will be met by renewable sources, and Saskatchewan will lead the country in energy conservation practices. It is time to work towards meeting that pledge.
