As climate change continues to affect temperature patterns in Newfoundland and Labrador, residents and businesses are likely to change when and how much energy they use. This may reduce energy demand and result in lower heating bills during milder-than-average fall and winter periods. Once the Muskrat Falls project enhances the Province's connection to the North American electricity grid, reductions in provincial electricity demand could help free up more electricity for export markets.

This application was created by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador's Office of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency. It is designed to provide a broad overview of how climate change is impacting Newfoundland and Labrador, and facilitate meeting curriculum outcomes for the high school course Environmental Science 3205.
