Newfoundland & Labrador Hydro
Who We Are
Hydro is the main energy provider for the people of Newfoundland and Labrador. We power our families, friends, and neighbours in 200+ communities around the province.
Every year, we generate more than 80% of the electrical energy consumed by Newfoundlanders and Labradorians. And we take pride in knowing that 80% of the total energy generated for our industrial, utility, and 38,000+ residential and commercial customers across the province, is clean hydroelectric generation.
We operate nine hydroelectric generating stations (956 MW), one oil-fired plant (490 MW), four gas turbines (250.5 MW), and 25 diesel plants (66 MW). We also maintain 54 high-voltage terminal stations, 25 lower-voltage interconnected distribution stations, and thousands of kilometres of transmission and distribution lines.
We also use clean, renewable wind energy from two wind farms on the island: 27 MW from the wind project in St. Lawrence with NeWind Group Inc. and 27 MW from the project in Fermeuse with Elemental Energy.
We understand that a dependable source of electricity is essential to everyday life, from turning on the lights to boiling the kettle for a cup of tea. For more than 50 years, we’ve been there for our families, friends, and neighbours across the province. And we’ll continue to ensure that our customers can count on us to provide the reliable energy they deserve.
