SaskPower is the main electric utility in the province of Saskatchewan. It currently serves more than 500,000 customers all over the province. It is imperative to notify SaskPower when changing addresses and move your service at your new location, to make sure you’ll have electricity, hot water and/or heating in your new home! In this article, we guide you through the different ways you can change your address with SaskPower.

When do I have to change my address with SaskPower?

It takes two days for your SaskPower to process your request, so it is recommended to inform them of your new address preferably before your move-in date. That way, you will be sure to have electricity when you move in and prevent any issues occurring with your service.

How do I change my address with SaskPower?

If you want to:

  • start a service as a new customer,
  • stop your home electrical service,
  • move your service to a new address
  • transfer the billing from your landlord to yourself

You can use the online ExpressAddress platform or call Customer Service at 1-888-757-6937 (Mon-Fri: 8am to 6pm).

What you should know!

You’ll have to pay fees depending on your need:

  • If you are moving your service to a new address or transferring the billing from your landlord to yourself:
    • A $35 + GST connect fee will be added to your next bill
    • Your account number will change when you move. If you currently have automatic payments set, make sure to update it with your account number.
  • If you are starting a new service:
    • A $35 + GST connect fee will be added to your next bill
    • If it is required to come on-site to reconnect your power, the total fee will then be $90 + GST

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I need a new power service for a new home or property?

There are multiple options available to you, depending if you are a private homeowner, if you’re building a house, or if you need financing.
