Nalcor selling Muskrat Falls to Ontario

Nalcor Energy’s chief executive Ed Martin is in Toronto this week for talks with the Ontario Power Authority and other Ontario energy officials about Newfoundland and Labrador’s latest megaproject: Nalcor’s development of the Lower Churchill hydro-electric project. Nalcor of course already has a $6.2 billion deal with Emera Inc. to develop the 824-megawatt Muskrat Falls project on the Lower Churchill. That power will move by undersea cable first to Newfoundland, then on to Nova Scotia. But Martin is also eyeing Ontario as a customer for the next step in the Lower Churchill: The 2,250-megawatt Gull Island project, upstream from Muskrat Falls. The Star takes a mainlander’s look at the two projects and their futures.
