NB Power and Nova Scotia Power are exploring the possibility of building a new transmission connection between this province and Colchester County, Nova Scotia.
The proposed connection would have a transmission capacity of up to 500 megawatts which would more than double the transmission capacity between the two provinces.
Talks will also focus on improving the agreement between NB Power and Emera's Bayside generating station including the potential to expand the facility. The expansion could result in new jobs for this region.
