The mix

Herewith, a pretty chart showing Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro's total generation output (in GWh, with percent of the total) from thermal (largely Holyrood) and hydraulic sources, over the past decade. (Churchill Falls, Menihek, isolated diesel, and the feeble wind industry output, excluded.)
