The BC government, BC Hydro, and the Clean Energy Association of B.C., which is comprised of independent energy providers, have signed a new memorandum of understanding.
This, as those power providers currently generate nearly a quarter of the province’s electricity every year, with that figure expected to grow.
Energy Minister Bill Bennett concedes the association hadn’t been getting the access to discussions with BC Hydro it needed.
“We’re going to respect one another, we’re going to share information, we’re going to meet on a regular basis and make sure that the private renewable power industry that we have today is able to grow in the future.”
The association’s Paul Kariya described the MOU as a way to clear “channels of communication” between the three bodies.
The MOU remains in effect until Dec. 31, 2017.
