Can Alberta clean up its energy production?

Pembina's Jeff Bell and Tim Weis will be presenting and discussing the report tonight at an event hosted by the University of Alberta Energy Club.

Only need 4 reactors and one run of river project on the Slave River to green electricity in this province without staking everything on the fluctuating price of natural gas or the speed of the wind.

Was there anything about transmission lines, because that's the real make or break. It doesn't matter how the electrical power is created (sun, wind, nuclear, hamster) getting it from A to B causes a problem around the world.
