In short, the agreement allows coal-fired power plants such as Boundary Dam 4 and 5 to continue operating until 2021 and 2024 respectively. Without this agreement, power plants based in Estevan are expected to be closed by the end of 2019. In addition to the deadlines, emission targets are also set in the equivalency agreement. and whereas, in determining equivalence, the effects of the federal regulation on coal-fired power plants have been modelled on the basis of regulated requirements that include 420 tonnes of carbon dioxide per gigawatt-hour of electricity generated (t CO2/GWh) of the emission intensity standard for coal-fired power plants operating beyond their useful life. Total modeled emissions from Saskatchewan`s electricity generation sector for the period January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2029 are 176.7 million tonnes of CO2; Methane equivalency agreements with Alberta and Saskatchewan will allow them to enforce their own regulations rather than having to follow the ottawas. Official Title: An agreement on the equivalence of federal and Saskatchewan rules for controlling greenhouse gas emissions from electricity producers in Saskatchewan, In 2020, between the Government of Canada, represented by the Minister of the Environment (“Canada”) and the Government of Saskatchewan, represented by the Minister of the Environment (“Saskatchewan”), “Canadians want their governments to continue to take action to combat climate change during the covide-19 pandemic. I am pleased that the federal government has entered into equivalency agreements with Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan to reduce methane emissions from their oil and gas sectors. These efforts are the basis for the next steps we need to take as a country to exceed our 2030 climate target. ” – Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister for Environment and Climate Change 5.2 This agreement expires on 31 December 2024.
