Natural Gas in Northern Communities
On August 22, members of SUMA's Executive Committee met with Minister Dustin Duncan and SaskPower President and CEO Mike Marsh. During the discussion, SUMA advocated for natural gas service to Saskatchewan's northern municipalities.
Recently, SUMA received a response from the Honourable Bronwyn Eyre, Minister responsible for SaskEnergy noting that engineers have examined the potential to reach more remote northern communities, but the eventual cost to homeowners would make natural gas more expensive than current fuel choices.
SUMA will continue to advocate for reliable and affordable energy sources for Saskatchewan's northern communities.
