Quebec Premier Jean Charest and New Brunswick Premier Shawn Graham today announced their desire to step up their discussions with a view to developing partnerships in the energy sector. The premiers have directed their energy officials, as well as representatives of NB Power and Hydro-Québec, to explore opportunities for co-operation, particularly in the areas of accessibility, supply, transmission, market opportunities, and greenhouse-gas reduction.
Quebec has lots of cheap power. Hopefully this new agreement will lead to lower power rates here. I am not an energy expert but weening off the high cost and polluting coal/oil power and using hydro power from Quebec might make good sense.
