WHEREAS the provincial rural electric grid system was put in place in the 1950s and 60s and it has served rural Saskatchewan very well.

WHEREAS the farming equipment in use 50 or 60 years ago was vastly different from the equipment of today, which is much wider and higher contributing to serious safety issues near this infrastructure.

BE IT RESOLVED that SARM work with SaskPower to develop an action plan to revitalize the electrical grid to meet today’s needs and into the future by using taller power poles and moving power lines to the property line adjacent to roads as opposed to in the fields.
