BC Hydro has selected two more projects to be awarded electricity purchase agreements under the Clean Power Call. Combined, the Pacific Greengen and Long Lake Joint Venture small hydro projects will generate an additional 287GWh of electricity annually.
The number of projects selected for electricity purchase agreements under the Clean Power Call to date are 25 – bringing the total amount of energy to be generated from the call to nearly 3200GWh per year.
The two new projects selected for the award of electricity purchase agreements under the Clean Power Call are:
• Pacific Greengen Power’s 148GWH/yr Bremner/Trio run-of-river project in Harrison Hot Springs.
• Long Lake Joint Venture’s 139GWh/yr Long Lake storage project in Stewart.
In the weeks ahead, BC Hydro will continue to consider two Clean Power Call proposals: Castle Mountain Hydro Ltd. in the McBride area, and Box Canyon Hydro Corp. near Port Mellon.
When all the electricity purchase agreements have been fully executed, BC Hydro will disclose the range of electricity prices.
