October 5, 2016 - SaskPower’s Retail Discount Program has returned from now until November 30, 2016, providing ways for customers to save money on bills.

“With our program you get instant in-store discounts at the cash register, where with most rebate programs you have to mail something in or clip a coupon,” says Janson Anderson, SaskPower’s director of customer programs.
One example of these rebates is the “lighting discount”.
“The best bulbs for you to buy are Energy-Star rated LEDs. They use about 80% less electricity and last up to 15 times longer than incandescent light bulbs,” says Anderson.
Since it started in 2010, this program has helped reduce overall power use in Saskatchewan by 36MW—enough to power about 7200 homes for a year, SaskPower notes.
This year SaskPower has also added a “smart home product discount”, which applies to select smart thermostats, power bars and plugs. These discounts are available until October 31.
“Smart home products allow you to take charge of your power use,” says Anderson. “Your mobile device can control some of these products, such as the thermostat and plugs, to help you control your use and save power, while the power bars allow you to reduce phantom power.”
Customers can also save on seasonal LED light strings from November 1-30.
