Did the rolling blackouts of #DarkNL 2014 get you down (and cold)? The key to staying warm may be in your recycling bin.
Events in Stephenville, St. John’s and Moncton, N.B. this weekend renew call for permanent ban on fracking and shift of focus to clean, renewable energy
A recap of the news conference this morning, including photos and the MOU document
What is being called a “major” announcement will be made this morning involving all the major players in the Muskrat Falls hydro development – Federal ministers, provincial ministers from Nova Scotia, and representatives from both Nalcor and Emera. The announcement is being billed as a “clean energy for Atlantic Canada” initiative, and is taking place at 9:00 this morning at Atlantic Place. The historic announcement means a much cheaper development for all involved parties; a loan guarantee on the proposed $6.2 billion project essentially lets the provincial government borrow money using the Federal government’s credit rating to reduce the interest paid on said loans. The loan guarantee would provide significant savings throughout the course of the project’s development. Stay tuned to TheIndependent.ca for pictures of the new conference. Source: VOCM
