P.E.I. wants in on Muskrat Falls

The Lower Churchill development could become a truly Atlantic Canadian endeavor. The Guardian is reporting that Prince Edward Island Energy Minister Richard Brown says that he has asked for P.E.I. to participate in the construction to help lower the cost of a third cable from P.E.I. to New Brunswick. “If we could tap on to that I believe we could get a better price,” he said. P.E.I. should be able to benefit from the project and if the province can tap in to the electricity from Muskrat Falls, it would mean all of P.E.I.’s power would come from sources that don’t emit carbon, he said.
