    The all time high was 1,405 MW (in 2006), yet Nalcor confirms that the island's "installed NET capacity" is 1,958 MW. So we have already have 553 MW to spare (more than Holyrood's net capacity of 490 MW. Why then will ratepayers go in debt billions of dollars for 50 years too build a firm Muskrat capacity of less than 600 MW (if Quebec don't scuttle the Water Management Agreement), almost 400 of which will have to go to Nova Scotia (part for free and part at between 4 and 9 cents per KWh) when NL ratepayers have to pay the full cost of production of about 37 cents per KWh FOR THE FULL AMOUNT? Tell me how that makes sense for NL ratepayers [yes for Nova Scotia, yes for Emera, yes for Nalcor, yes for the NL government (NL ratepayers are paying the full shot so that government reaps what is essentially a hidden tax)] --- but NL ratepayers are paying in the billions for something THEY don't need --- so that others can benefit.
