Or we could just use less electricity…

CBC reports that “Maritime Electric says it needs to sign a deal to buy a new 50 MW electric generator by next month, or P.E.I. could run short of electricity by the fall of 2005.”

The alternative is that we simply use less, isn’t it? I’m up for it.

Or lay another 100 MW cable to increase the flow over the present 200 MW which would cost a lot less than a 50 MW generator — though more than conservation. Why does the government there never mention a third cable? Oh, I forgot — no mock but expensive “independence” supported by buying from the north-eastern grid.
