Saskatchewan is taking steps to reduce its reliance on coal by adding wind, solar and geothermal power. SaskPower, the Crown utility, says the goal is to have up to 50 per cent of power come from renewable sources by 2030. Bill Boyd, minister responsible for SaskPower, says Saskatchewan will not introduce a carbon tax as Alberta did yesterday in its climate change plan. (Boyd also says SaskPower will still use coal to generate power, but look to carbon capture to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.)
