The past year has been one of marked activity in the B.C. power sector with industry responding to policy actions described
in the Province’s 2007 Energy Plan. A two-step conservation rate was established for BC Hydro’s residential customers and the utility is developing a rate structure to encourage its large commercial customers to conserve electricity. On the supply side, BC Hydro launched a Standing Offer Program to acquire energy from small-sized generation projects and
initiated bio-energy and clean power calls seeking additional supplies of clean power from IPPs.
