PAST & PRESENT

Before the year 2000, each municipality had its own not for profit hydro-electric commission. Seeing that there were approximately 320 hydro-electric commissions at this time the ruling Provincial Conservative introduced the Electricity Act so hydro companies became incorporated companies which would force mergers/sales/ and efficiency in the system.

Today there are approximately 65 hydro distribution companies with Lakeland Power being one.
