Very interesting. My confidence in Nalcor keeps slipping more and more every day.

Ed, do you know if the peak demand forecasts for figures 6 and 7 are supposed to be different (2014- 2022-2032 vs 2022-2032-2041) or if that's a typo?

I raised that with the author before we posted it.

It isn't a typo. He intended to go until 2041, when CF power is available in larger amounts.
