The Lower Churchill project currently involves building a dam at Muskrat Falls on Labrador's Churchill River.

A panel assigned to review the Lower Churchill hydro-electric project calls the company's analysis of the project "inadequate," while also asking for more information from Nalcor.
The review panel is recommending a new, independent analysis based on economic, energy and environmental considerations. The new analysis would take into consideration domestic energy demand projections, as well as alternate energy sources, such as using offshore gas as a fuel for the Holyrood thermal generating facility.
