    Nalcor Energy proposes to construct two hydroelectric generating stations
with a total capacity of just over 3000 megawatts (MW) on the Lower Churchill
River, together with transmission lines to connect the two generation sites to
the existing Upper Churchill Project. The proposed generation stations would
be located at Gull Island (2,250 MW) and Muskrat Falls (824 MW).
