Hydroelectric Benefits Ontario, Newfoundland

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] The Ontario government has submitted a proposal, along with Hydro-Quebec and SNC-Lavalin, to support the development of a hydroelectric generation project in Newfoundland and Labrador. The proposed project would yield 2,824 MW of electricity, which would be enough to power almost two million homes. Ontario and Quebec will work with Newfoundland and Labrador to develop 2,000 MW at a Gull Island site and 824 MW at Muskrat Falls, which are both on the Lower Churchill River. Ontario would receive one-third of the total power output of the project. As part of the agreement, Hydro-Quebec would also advance construction of a 1,250 MW power grid interconnection with Ontario, to be in service by 2009.
