The Innovative HUG System creates approximately $18 million in new revenue period over three years– with an investment of $ 7 million over the same time frame; netting $11 in new money, yet this investment can be flipped as a Hydro Public Private Partnerships, earning a pre-tax return of 10% for decades. Based on these high earnings, the value of the investment will appreciate accordingly.
These take different forms. Many employ a mix of public and private funding, with the operation and maintenance of the infrastructure performed by a private enterprise on behalf of the government. The most familiar example of a PPP is the Confederation Bridge between New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. But there are still relatively few existing PPPs in Canada.
Other countries, such as the United Kingdom and Australia, offer many examples of successful PPP infrastructure. Unlike most jurisdictions in Canada, these other countries already have a well-developed legal and regulatory framework for PPP investments
