Cost effective clean energy

Editor: Run of river hydro projects require more than 50 approvals before they can be built.


Run-of-river hydro projects in B.C. require more than 50 approvals, permits and licenses from 14 government agencies before they can be built.

An example is the $180 million, 50 megawatt Kwoiek Creek project south of Lytton, which has taken 18 years to get from inception to construction.

Once completed the project will provide a cost-effective supply of clean, renewable energy for years to come with minimal impact on the environment.
