David vs Goliath

My intention here is to compare the metrics vis a vis of the megawatt yield. It has also triggered my interest in massive eletricity production units, I will research and document such projects in order to have more holistic approach to energy production in its diverse forms. My focus will be on clean energies. Let us start with hydro electric. Please read text below untitled "Projet de la baie James" and compare to the metrics recaped below.

Im proud to see that my brainchild develops very competitive metrics cost and production wise compared to the James bay project. :)

Most essentially, impact on environment is minimal compared to the James bay project.

I will be looking forward to compare those metrics to other grand scale projects worldwide.

James Bay hydroelectric project


Built between 1974 and 1996, the several power plants have a combined generating capacity of 16,021 megawatts (MW). three times more than the power station at Niagara Falls.

The project has cost upwards of 20 billion US dollars to build

During this first phase of construction, over 155,000,000 m³ (203 million cubic yards) of fill, 138,000 tons of steel, 550,000 tons of cement, and nearly 70,000 tons of explosives were used. Concurrent employment by the project reached 18,000. Of the 215 dikes and dams, many surpassed the height of skyscrapers, with one reaching 56 stories.

350 000 square km area of exploitation.
