SOP Optimization

On October 21, 2015, the Government of B.C., Clean Energy BC and BC Hydro signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). The MOU supports a strong relationship between the parties and fosters ongoing engagement on key issues to strengthen British Columbia's competitive advantage of reliable, affordable and clean electricity, including Independent Power Producers (IPPs).

On February 29, 2016, we launched the new Micro-SOP, and revised rules for the SOP. In addition, we also announced that we, along with the Government of B.C. and Clean Energy BC, are exploring ways to optimize the SOP and Micro-SOP to better reflect recent technological advancements and changing system needs.
