Committee says no to wind turbine at landfill

City administration will no longer recommend building a wind turbine at the Saskatoon Landfill.

Saskatoon City Council requested bids for the project this past year, but only received one submission by the closing date of December 15. The proposal was “well beyond” the budget set out by council, according to a release sent Friday afternoon.

The bid placed the cost of the project around $6.35 million, almost $2 million over the budget requested by council. City administration feels that while the turbine would make a profit, the margin is not high enough to recommend the build at this price.

“This proposal is a high-end solution that comes with a high-end price tag,” says Jeff Jorgenson, Utility Services General Manager. “Although the cash flow for the proposed wind turbine would still be positive for the city, the project is no longer considered to be a good financial investment.”
