Outcome of the Process

From March 11 to August 3, 2010, BC Hydro selected 27 projects from 18 proponents for the award of 25 Electricity Purchase Agreements ("EPAs") (three projects were combined into a single EPA). They represent approximately 3,266 GWh per year of contractually firm electricity, enough to meet the annual needs of about 290,000 homes. These projects are to be in-service by November 1, 2016. See also the Clean Power Call Project Overviews [PDF, 218 KB].

The 27 projects include 19 run-of-river projects, six wind projects, one storage hydro project and one waste heat project. The projects represent capital spending of more than $3.8 billion, creating approximately 3,800 person years of employment.
