DEEP Earth Energy Production Corporation is going to build a geothermal power demonstration plant near Estevan in southern Saskatchewan. The province is putting $175 thousand into the project. The funds will be delivered over two years and will be used to purchase equipment and build the infrastructure needed to demonstrate the feasibility of geothermal power. The source is a 120 degree aquifer deep underground which the province says, has the potential to generate constant electricity while generating zero carbon emissions. DEEP estimates up to 500 megawatts of power might be possible. Initially, the project is expected to deliver five megawatts to SaskPower’s grid. The facility will be Canada’s first geothermal power plant.
