The eight independent power firms have until 25 May 2018 to submit their proposals, according to the province's utility, SaskPower.

"As of today, wind makes up a total of 5%  of our available generating capacity. We plan to increase this to 30% by 2030, and this project is one way we will reach our goal," said SaskPower vice-president of special projects Guy Bruce.

The winner of the 200MW licence will be named in autumn 2018, and will be expected to have installed the capacity by early 2021.

Saskatchewan's planned strategy will see renewable energy sources make up 50% of generating capacity in the province by 2030, cutting electricity sector greenhouse emissions 40% below 2005 levels.
