While I agree with the need for 'clean' power, I disagree with it being Muskrat Falls for one simple reason. Expense! I can barely afford to heat my bathroom and kitchen on the disability amount of just over $600per month that I get to live on. I agree Holyrood generators are messy but a better cheaper alternative is out there if 'they' (the PCs)look hard enough

We can do perfectly well without "clean" (but obscenely expensive) Muskrat Falls power. The existing hydro generators on this island could be connected up to the grid for a tiny fraction of the cost of MF and its transmission line.

Red, you do not have a good understanding of our power grid. Should another unit go down (unexpectedly or for maintenance) anywhere in the province, we would see widespread outages. We have been lucky since January that we have not had this issue. Next winter, we may not be so lucky

Wow you would think that with a so called power shortage in the province that we wouldn't be able to do without this generator. Did anyone notice any blackouts since Jan11? What a farce it is that we "need" Muskrat Falls power.

Red you would have a different tune if you lived next to the Holyrood power generating plant. Clean Muskrat Falls power is needed asap.
