    cutting capacity!

    In Canada Alcoa pays 2.97 cents Canadian per kwh and in the US it could cost 10 times the amount.

    So by going to AP-40,50 and 60 reduction technology, they produce more metal with power that costs 1/10th of the US cost base and the capital expenditures are most efficient per ton of aluminum produced.

    That is why Alcoa is expanding in Canada as we speak.

    Free power and you can not beat that.
