Alberta's electrical generation plans are primarily for export!

The Alberta Government finds it easier to tell outright lies and misrepresent even the simplest of truths than to face a fact and represent it fairly.
Yes power lines are being planned and built andyou are being told to pay for them and power generation facilities that do nothing but export power to the US.

Yes this Government is in charge of the electrical pricing and they will continue to increase the price of your electricity to make new generation and lines appear attractive.

And, yes you will continue to pay unless you get off your tails and vote in a new Government!

When reading this, consider Alberta’s electrical production is close to 12000 MW

There is literally an army of corporations with applications into the Federal Government to export power from Canada to the US. These have been granted and are not restricted to any one province or jurisdiction. Much is expected to come from Alberta. The export terms generally run 3 years with a clear option of renewing.
The US needs more power than we can supply; a perfect market!
“Generation of 350,000 megawatts (MW) of new electricity is necessary to satisfy electricity demand in the U.S.A. in 2030, according to forecasts and predictions of the government. Along the way, a generation increase of 80,000 MW to 90,000 MW will be necessary from 2006 to 2012.”

And:
“If the Government's target of 10% power generation is to be reached using renewable energy by 2010, a total of 10,000 megawatts (MW) will have to be installed at that date.”
