The Brits have ceded some power to Ontario — nuclear power, that is. Pressing financial obligations forced British Energy plc to sell a bundle of its Canadian assets, including an 82.4 percent interest in the Bruce Power Limited Partnership, to a consortium of Canadian entities. British Energy sold its entire stake in the partnership, as well as its 50 percent interest in Huron Wind, the province’s first commercial wind farm, for a total of about $670 million. Supplying the province with up to 10 percent of its power, Bruce Power is one of the largest nuclear generators in the world. The consortium is comprised of Cameco Corporation, BPC Generation Infrastructure Trust (a trust established by the Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System), TransCanada PipeLines Limited, Power Workers’ Union Trust No. 1, and The Society of Energy Professionals Trust. Cameco, BPC, and TransCanada purchased a 79.8 percent interest in Bruce Power, and a partnership between the power workers union and the society of energy professionals bought the remaining 2.6 percent owned by British Energy.
