Thanks for the reply DTM. I didn't think that Quebec was that close to capacity, but peaked my curiousity when I read that article. If it can all be produced by hydro, doesn't seem like crazy idea at all. Some people in Sask even use electricity, that seems crazy to me, but they insist the low initial cost of the furnace-boiler makes up for the extra cost. Haven't been able to work it out myself but then I'm heating with wood now.
Something that has always seemed beyond crazy to me is, in the middle of winter when the power plant beside Saskatoon is running full out. The river is kept open for a distance from all the cooling water dumped into it.
