Operations

Our commitment goes beyond operational excellence. We are 100% focused on delivering the safest, most reliable, least-cost electricity to our industrial, utility, and 38,000+ residential and commercial customers in rural Newfoundland and Labrador.

Our regulated assets include nine hydroelectric generating stations, one oil-fired plant, four gas turbines, and 25 isolated diesel generating and distribution systems. 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.
