Moose Jaw isn't the only one who will be seeing the construction of a power plant in the coming years.
On Friday, The Canadian Government made the announcement of a new geothermal power facility will be built in the southeast corner of the province.
The energy project, led by DEEP Earth Energy Production Corporation, is the first of its kind in Canada and taps into a new, renewable energy resource and will be located near Estevan.
Geothermal energy harnesses heat from the earth’s crust and transforms it into electricity to power homes and businesses year round.
The Federal Government has promised to provide $25.6 million in funding for the five Megawatt facility, which will produce enough energy to power approximately 5,000 homes all while taking the equivalent of the yearly emissions of 7,400 cars out of the atmosphere and will create 100 jobs during the construction of the project.
