Planning For Our Electricity Future Should Be Led By An Independent Body

  • That’s the funniest thing I’ve ever read. The UARB penalizing NSPI. That’ll never happen. Rates will never roll back & no matter the source, NSPI will increase costs to ratepayers to satisfy shareholders. No other reason. It’s one company, I for one, can’t wait for them to go bankrupt. The only solution for ratepayers is to generate your own power. Get off their grid. Otherwise you’ll never save. NSPI is shooting for $0.40 per kWh by 2030. Get off their grid or strait a revolution. Only solutions.

  • If much of the power from Muskrat Falls is exported to the US, could not the same apply to excess power from a Nova Scotia nuclear power plant? Much of what I have read lately speaks about the safety of today’s nuclear plants and the reliability, low cost and clean nature of nuclear power relative to other sources. The challenge may be the cost to build them.

    • Thanks Steve. It is not a good idea to own only one of them. It means that a lot of overhead that would serve many plants has to be covered by one. And any jurisdiction building its first plant has extra risk of big cost overruns.
