Atlantic Growth Strategy announces plans for 'clean power road map'

The Atlantic Growth Strategy is announcing plans to develop what they're calling a ``clean power road map'' for Atlantic Canada.

An engineering study will look into improving power transmission connections throughout the region.

It also will consider tying in with Quebec to allow for another 2,000 megawatts of electricity.

They say the study will inform governments on how to invest in electricity technologies, such as tidal energy and smart grids.
