    • Thanks for the catch on Hydro One, Arthur. As for the others, I wan’t hydro to be a significant part of a company’s business- enough so that it can drive financial results- to make the list. I left AQN out because it’s mostly a distribution and water utility (less than 15% of revenues are from power generation, and only a fraction of that is hydro.) Transalta Renewables (RNW.TO) is only 5% hydro, not enough to make the list. I have not looked at Transalta’s assets recently, but last time I looked they were a lot heavier on the fossil fuels than RNW.TO.
