The board released its report Monday approving electricity exports by the New Brunswiclc Electric Power Commission to Maine power companies over ihe next 14 years. The federal (ward's findings, but publica- tion of the report Is a sign that the cabinet has approved the report. The power to be exporlei would come from a generating station to be built a Lorneville, N.B., planned silc o a deep-water port. The gener ating plants v.ould use foreign oil to create electricity, thus in- creasing chances that the deep- water port will be built. The board noted that this was the first application it had ever received for a power export from generating facilities to he constructed partially for an ex- port market. Previous exports have been from facilities built almost exclusively for the Ca- nadian market. In its appraisal of the impact of the project on the environ- ment, the board noted evidence from Ihe exporter that the gen- erating plant would emit tons a year of sulphur oxides, nitrogen oxides and p articu- lates into the air, while tho U.S.-Canada energy relations and whether Canada should de- velop its energy-producing ca- pacity for itself alone or for the U.S. It based its judgment on tra- ditional criteria: the power la surplus to Canadian needs, the selling price of 10.27 mills a kil- owatt-hour Is enough to cover Canadian costs, the price Is not below that of New Brunswick prices and it is not materially less than prices (or alternative kilowatts of firm jower to be received by the tfew Brunswick power commis- sion for redrslivery to Maine :'ublic Service Co. and Eastern Uaine Electric Co-operativo Inc. power in the U.S. The export licences provide for exports of: maximum kilo- watts of firm power lo Maine Electric Power Company Inc. from 1976 to 1986; maximum 876 million kil- owatt-hours a year o! inter ruptiblq energy to ME PC from 1976 to 1985, and a maximum million kilowatt-hours in 1986; Facilities to be built for the export project include three generators at Lorneville and two 345-kilovolt transmission lines, each 80 miles long, from Lorneville to Keswick. The power commission said lhat without the export, it would only build one owatt and one generator at Lornevllle, plus smaller ones at Dalhousie and Courtney Day. The larger generators would save money by being more ef- ficient and would be a greater asset when the exports ended, the commission said. and Pratt and Whitney Aircraft, a division of United Aircraft Corporate.

He said the program has cost loo much and shown too little in the way of results. A Con- servative administration woulc separate the infrastructure anc industrial incentive aspects of the program and then co-ordi- nate them to better serve the needs and priorities of the lo- cality. He suggested the program be decentralized, adding that an other aspect that concerned him was the growing unwilling ness of the righer parts of th country lo support the ex pendilure of tax money wit! apparent lack of results. He said that in 1968, Prim Minister Trideau started ou with what was to have been "just society." the Oppo- sition leader said, it has be come "Mr. Tnidcau's sccre society." He said the public Is havin Increasing difficulty in findin ut what Is going on in govern- ,ent.

Oil companies win says NDPer VANCOUVER (CP) The proposed Alaska oil pipeline and :he west coast tanker route bat- tle has already been won by the oil companies, a New Demo- cratic Parly candidate says. Speaking at an all candi- dates meeting held in the two- seat East Vancouver riding, Alex MacDonald said the oil companies have already spent said Mr. Fisher at official opening ceremonies. "It explored the technical and economic aspects of fuel cell energy service and established the requirements that would have to be met for the various potential applications in the market. "Phase II, now in progress, Involves the continued research and the production of a number of experimental fuel cell power plants for field testing. If Phase II proves to be successlul, Phase III could become a real- ity. The introduction of the fuel cell power plant Into the mar- ket place." Canadian Western joined the 32 other utilities in the org- anization late in 1971. While the power plants are not yet available commercial- ly, their potential benefits seem to indicate the inevitability of their use on a large scale. The fuel cell being tested In Calgary uses air and natural gas to generate electricity elec- tronically. It operates quietly and emits a clean exhaust con- sisting primarily of carbon di- oxide and water vapor. The exhaust emitted by simi- lar units indicates emissions are 100 times cleaner than Uiat of coal-fired steam-electric gen- erating unils producing an equivalent amount of electric energy. Also, thermal pollution from the units are minimal. The fuel cell power plants millions to lay pipe from hoe bay, the pipe has been bought, 'the Cherry Point refin- ery created and Uie ships or- dered. "The rest Is he said. also otfer high efficiency over a full range of electric loads and will deliver more electri- city per cubic foot of natural gas than any other system In general use.

"They would be even smaller n comparison with the total icncfil-s, including the indirect economic benefits to Canada in :hc form of additional employ- in e n t and cflpilal ex- penditures." In assessing the economics o! export project, the board found there would be a net ad- vantage lo (he power commis- sion of million. This would cut to million if the nevillo deep-water plant were nol approved. The report also ijicludod a gentle rccommendalion that New Brunswick and Nova Scotia coordinate their electric power systems more.

The assessment of a ?25-mil- lion net benefit was also based on "the existing degree of co- ordination between the Now Brunswick ancS Nova Scotia utilities." The board accepted the com- mission's estimate of its rate of relnrn on capilal investment in the export facilities as 12.1 to 1S.5 per cent, depending on pos- sible plant values in 1936.
