  • Edmundston Energy receives $2 million for hydropower modernization project

    EDMUNDSTON, Canada, 11/9/11 (PennWell) – Edmundston Energy will receive up to CAD $2 million from the Canadian federal government for a hydroelectric dam modernization project.

    The municipal power utility’s Madawaska Hydrodam project consists of a 4.05 MW small hydroelectric system that will be constructed by Norcan Hydraulic Turbine Inc. The plant will generate 20 gigawatt-hours of electricity that will be used to power more than 1,600 homes.

    “Today’s announcement is another example of our government’s action to increase the supply of clean, renewable energy for Canadians,” said Bernard Valcourt, Minister of State for the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency. “[The project] is helping create high-quality jobs and a sustainable energy source for New Brunswick’s future.”

    The Madawaska modernization project is just part of the $1.5 billion ecoENERGY for Renewable Power program that will provide a one cent per kilowatt-hour incentive over 10 years. The goal is to increase Canada’s renewable electrical capacity by more than 4,000 MW.
