The following links can provide some context on how much electricity moves between Canada and the US.

In 2010, a net 25.3 million megawatt-hours of energy were exported from Canada to the US. If this power flowed at a constant rate, it would be about 2900 megawatts, or the equivalent output from 2 or 3 nuclear reactors.
