Premium

Summary

These generation options represent part of the solution to a complex challenge of just in time delivery of electricity to our businesses and homes. [...] For each of the technologies assessed, in each province, the study will address the following questions: 1. What is the annual electricity generation potential? [...] It notes the unique comprehensiveness of the economic analysis from the perspective of the total cost impacting the electricity system of each option. [...] The avoided cost is the cost of the next unit of generation needed to meet demand. [...] If the new generation unit can be delayed a few years, the cost savings of that delay becomes the economic benchmark, but not the entire cost of the new generation unit.
