On the eastern grid all are tied. MT,ND, SD,MB,MN. If AB had extra they wouldn't need to buy from SK for the eastern portion of the province would they?
Canada has three power grids: the Western grid, the Eastern grid, and the Quebec grid, which includes Atlantic Canada. The border between the Eastern and Western grids is the Alberta-Saskatchewan border. Canadian grids are also tied into the U.S. grids (the Western Interconnection, the Eastern Interconnection and the Texas Interconnection). For example, the electricity grid in Alberta and British Columbia is part of the Western Interconnection in the United States.
All provinces are interconnected with neighboring provinces, allowing them to import and export power. East-west transmission is less common than north-south transmission. To date, most of the inter-provincial exchange of power has occurred in Eastern Canada, with the largest transfers between Quebec and Labrador. Canadian utilities and government leaders are currently exploring ways to increase east-west electricity flow, especially between Ontario and Manitoba and Ontario and Quebec, for better flow of electricity between provinces. The territories are neither interconnected, nor do they have connections with the provinces or the United States.
i'm sure sask could ship it both ways on the line but not like we do here in alberta which is daily back and forth to b.c. They would have to do some mods.
The triple 7 and 107 lines going into b.c. From alberta are both capable of switching back and forth.sask. Is not.
Wont be Alberta,the rate were going we will have excess in a couple years.Sask will be crying for it,they will be the fastest growing province for a few years.
What does "it" mean here? Too many pronouns.
So Sask will need power other than the oild sands to develop its oil sands?
SK oil sands will sit for a long time. We have too much crude to sell off first before touching any oil sands and we don't need your over priced power thanks.
Everything is still in exploration stage and a **** load of leases expire next year. They aren't being developed yet.
The nuke idea has been quashed a couple years ago.
Jobs are easy to come by in SK but as for oil sands in SK it's going to be awhile.The main player is in financial **** and things are at a snail's pace.
It' not about a shortage to develope. It makes far more sense to play in the liquid oil game in SK. There is oodles.
Pipes for? There is only one player and they are exploration only and they are in deep ****.. Oil sands fall second to Uranium which is given far more priority when it comes to developement and infrastructure.
I know what is going on. It's exploration only and it's going no where for the time being. Until proven it sits.
