    As for being green, Muskrat Falls is one way to rise our island hydro up another 12 percent on top of existing 85 percent . That will put about as green as Manitoba, Que, and BC. The problem is the cost. Our power is now about 50 percent more than those other provinces. With MF it will double their's. That's a high price to gain 12 points. Energy Efficicncy can do the same thing as it reduces demand. My calaculations show that efficient heating( which uses 1/3 the power) for all residential units reduces demand by 2 times the generation output of Holyrood oil fired plant of all of 2011. This achieves the same green result. The cost is about 1/4 that of MF. The reduced demand reduces our power bills by 30 percent per year. Other jurisdictions such as Vermont is doing this. We need a proper plan that reduces demand about 2.5 percent per year. Not hard to do.

    A perfect article on the Muskrat Falls Fiaco for any CARING people out there, except Big Business who cares about their buttom line. Kudos to the Telegram who are proving they are an unbiased Newspaper. You are doing the public of Newfoundland and Labrador a better service then the the governments we elected to serve us. Thank you all!
