SaskPower announced its first ever battery energy storage system (BESS) located at their Fleet Street substation in Regina is now online.  The storage system provides some flexibility to the provincial grid with a capacity of 20 megawatts of power, enough to supply 20,000 homes for an hour.

Minister responsible for SaskPower, Dustin Duncan, said "the addition of battery storage will enable SaskPower to better respond to fluctuating demands of our electrical grid" 

The construction of the project started in the fall of 2022 and was funded in part by the Government of Canada. for more information visit
