Manitoba, Saskatchewan governments commit to building bigger power grid

Mar 9, 2010 - The Associated Press

The Manitoba and Saskatchewan governments have agreed to more than double the capacity of the power grid that connects the two provinces.

Saskatchewan Energy Minister Bill Boyd says a preliminary deal has been signed that will eventually see new transmission lines and other infrastructure built, so that power can flow either way - depending on demand.

The aim is to add 150 megawatts - enough electricity to power 150,000 homes - to the grid's current capacity of 105 megawatts.

Boyd says Saskatchewan needs to strengthen its energy supply because of the province's growing population and economy.

Manitoba Hydro Minister Rosann Wowchuk says the extra power could also help in the event of a shortage caused by a storm or drought.

The provinces still have to work out details such as when the power grid can be completed and how much it will cost.
