Wuskwatim Under Water -- and Sinking
Welcome to Frontier Vox - Our most popular commentaries now available in audio podcast form.
"Manitoba electricity ratepayers are now subsidizing the export sales from the province's new generators, including Wuskwatim and new wind farms. Subsidies to exports will grow in the near term and persist for the foreseeable future. Once lucrative for exports, the U.S. electricity market is suffering the combined effects of a slower Midwestern economy, the rising Canadian currency and the new shale gas bounty now transforming our energy future. On top of this, Manitoba's official assumption the U.S. would implement carbon pricing has fizzled."
