Hydro’s plan calls for construction on the $6.2-billion Keeyask project to start next June. The 695-megawatt generating station is scheduled to go into service in 2019.

For the project to go forward, Hydro first needs to convince the CEC to recommend the province issue it an environmental licence.

Keeyask is also the subject of a wider hearing by the Public Utilities Board on whether it and its sister Conawapa station are needed.
