State official to tour Canadian hydro plants

The top energy official for Massachusetts heads to Canada on Sunday for a tour of massive hydroelectricity dams in Newfoundland, Labrador, and Quebec as way to cement the state’s interest in importing more power from the generating stations.

The trip by Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Richard K. Sullivan Jr. comes just a few months after several New England leaders, including Governor Deval Patrick, unveiled a shared initiative to bring more hydropower into the region. Sullivan will visit facilities owned by Nalcor Energy and Hydro-Quebec early next week, then join Patrick on a longer trade mission to Canada.
