Unlike oil and gas, electricity is not a primary source of energy. It needs to be manufactured from other energy sources.
In 2010, hydro
was the source of 97.10
% of Newfoundland and Labrador's electricity. Oil
, natural gas
alternatives account for the other 2.90%. Newfoundland and Labrador has no coal fired or nuclear power plants. Wind
generation came online after 2006.
Newfoundland and Labrador produces all of its own electricity needs. See its production statistics here
