New Brunswick - Edmundston Energy Project
The Department of Environment is providing Edmundston Energy with $1,740,000 to build a second powerhouse on the Madawaska River in Edmundston.1 The new powerhouse would have a single 3.8 MW hydro generating unit. In addition, Edmundston Energy plans to refurbish a 1917 vintage 1.4 MW plant to better utilize river flows in excess of the capacity of the new powerhouse. In its entirety, this is a $20 million project.
It is expected that the new generation unit will generate about 20.05 GWh (million kWh) of electricity, while the refurbishment of the existing unit could result in an additional 2.95 GWh of electricity generated. Thus, in its entirety, implementing the project will mean that Edmunston Energy would have to purchase approximately 23 GWh less electricity per year from NB Power.
