• Eastern Canadian utility eying US power sales
    November 02,2013


    MONTPELIER — An eastern Canadian electric utility that wants to sell its excess power in the United States says there are more deals in the works for new transmission lines through New England.

    For now, though, the general manager of energy marketing for Nalcor Energy, based in St. Johns, Newfoundland, isn’t identifying any of the proposals to reach potential customers in the region and New York.

    Jones made the comments Friday, a day after a New York company announced plans to build a transmission line from the Canadian border down Lake Champlain and then across Vermont to hook up to the New England power grid. It was the third major new transmission line proposed for the region in recent years.

    Nalcor has extensive hydro and wind power resources.
