Local Utility Supports Power Lines For Shredder

Saint John Energy says they want to see the power lines needed to power a west side metal shredder become a reality.
Spokesperson Darin Lamont tells CHSJ News the utility is anticipating growing power demands for the west side in the coming years.

He says if they had requested this project it would cost Saint John Energy two million dollars that would have to be passed through their rates but, this way NB Power funds it through the AIM project and they can add a sub-station to it later on.
He says allowing the lines makes the most fiscal sense for everyone.
