The lower Churchill River is one of the most attractive hydroelectric resources in North America.

Nalcor is currently developing the Muskrat Falls Project, which includes construction of an 824 MW hydroelectric generating facility, over 1,600 km of transmission lines across the province, and the Maritime Link between Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. The project is an essential component of Nalcor’s commitment to sustainability and climate change management. Once in service, power from Muskrat Falls will help meet the province’s long-term energy needs by providing clean, renewable energy for future generations.
