Saskatchewan Environment Minister John Nilson officially opened the Centennial Wind Power Facility in a recent ceremony.

The project, located 25 kilometers southeast of Swift Current, began as part of Sask- Power’s Green Power Portfolio to provide safe, reliable power in an environmentally responsible and cost-effective way, says Pat Youzwa, president and CEO of SaskPower.
