Corporate Overview

NL Hydro (Hydro), a Nalcor Energy company, powers the people of Newfoundland and Labrador. People who deserve the safest, most reliable, least-cost electricity.

Every year, we generate more than 80% of the electrical energy consumed by Newfoundlanders and Labradorians. And we take pride in knowing that 80% of the energy generated for our industrial, utility, and 38,000+ residential and commercial customers across the province is clean hydroelectric generation.

With an installed generating capacity of 1,763 megawatts (MW), our regulated assets include nine hydroelectric generating stations (956 MW), one oil-fired plant (490 MW), four gas turbines (250.5 MW), and 25 diesel plants (66 MW). We also maintain 54 high-voltage terminal stations, 25 lower-voltage interconnected distribution stations, and thousands of kilometres of transmission and distribution lines, all of which are outlined on our provincial generation and transmission grid.

As a part of our ongoing strategy to leverage wind as a source of clean, renewable energy, we secured power purchase agreements in 2007 for 54 MW of wind energy on the island: the 27 MW wind project in St. Lawrence with NeWind Group Inc. and the 27 MW project in Fermeuse with Elemental Energy.

We understand that a dependable source of electricity is essential to everyday life, from turning on the lights to boiling the kettle for a cup of tea. For more than 50 years, we’ve been there for our families, friends, and neighbours across the province. And we’ll continue to ensure that our customers can count on us to provide the reliable energy they deserve.

With a commitment to operational excellence, long-term strategic planning, continuous infrastructure upgrades, and the use of new technologies, we’re focused on finding the best way to provide our customers with electrical power that is cost-efficient, sustainable, and environmentally sound.
