TransCanada Donates $250,000 of Industrial Equipment and Support for Hurricane Sandy Flood Relief Efforts

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- (Marketwire) -- 11/08/12 -- TransCanada Corporation (TSX:TRP) (NYSE:TRP) (TransCanada) announced today that it is donating up to $250,000 in equipment and cash to help New York speed up recovery efforts following Hurricane Sandy.

TransCanada has an active presence in the New York region where the company operates the Ravenswood Power Facility in Long Island City, NY. Under normal operating conditions, Ravenswood is capable of producing up to 25 percent of the daily electricity that is consumed in New York City. In the days following Hurricane Sandy and with the damage to other electrical facilities, TransCanada's Ravenswood facility provided up to 50 percent of the available power to the New York City electrical grid.

"New York City is an important part of TransCanada's power business and while our employees and personnel came through this storm safely, many of our friends and neighbors experienced great loss," said Russ Girling, president and chief executive officer, TransCanada. "We have already moved supplies and industrial equipment from Louisiana and the U.S. Northeast to draw down water in public housing located on Coney Island and to provide power on Staten Island."

The equipment includes large and medium-capacity pumps, generators, hoses and discharge equipment. TransCanada generators were delivered to New York City Emergency Management officials on Staten Island and will be used by homeowners who continue to be without any source of power. TransCanada pumps were delivered to the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) on Coney Island. The specific housing sites using these pumps on Coney Island are Coney Island Houses, Surfside, and O'Dwyer Gardens.

"Over the past week, thousands of people from around the City and across the country have stepped forward to help New Yorkers whose lives have been turned upside down by Hurricane Sandy," said Mayor Michael Bloomberg. "TransCanada stepped forward very early to help our recovery efforts - just as a good neighbor would do. We are grateful for the support we've received from generous individuals and corporate citizens, who are pitching in to help our City recover from this devastating storm."

At the same time, TransCanada will be donating $100,000 to the Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City for the City's emergency response needs and long-term restoration efforts. This non-profit organization is dedicated to innovative public-private partnerships and programs for the City of New York. For more information on this important initiative and the ongoing hurricane relief efforts, please go to: www.nyc.gov/html/fund.

TransCanada will continue to monitor the effects of Sandy and any other potential storms that may impact the East Coast to determine what additional help for New Yorkers is needed.
