Energy efficiency is not a named priority for the current government of Saskatchewan. The issue was hardly mentioned in the 2017 Climate Change Plan.

Major programs in Saskatchewan include the Commercial Space & Water Heating Rebate Program, the Commercial Boiler Program and the Industrial Energy Optimization Program.

The Commercial Space & Water Heating Rebate Program offers rebates for natural gas furnaces, boilers, tankless and condensing water heaters, and infrared tube heaters (including ENERGY STAR certified products) in commercial applications. Available exclusively through participating SaskEnergy Commercial & Residential Network Members located across Saskatchewan, the program provides rebates based on the incremental price of energy-efficient equipment.

The Commercial Boiler Program was designed to encourage the use of high-efficiency natural gas hydronic space-heating systems in commercial new construction and retrofits. It provides incentives to help offset the incremental price of a high-efficiency natural gas condensing boiler over the purchase price of a standard-efficiency boiler. Incentives are based upon space-heating, ventilating, domestic hot water load and type of equipment.

Industrial Energy Optimization Program was designed to help industrial facilities systematically identify energy waste and reduce the cost associated with electrical energy use during the production process. It offers personalized support geared at improving the efficiency of process operations, leading to reduced costs and emissions.
