BC Hydro established the Clean Energy measure as a minimum threshold target in accordance with the B.C. Government's requirement that at least 93 per cent of electricity generation in the province should be from clean or renewable resources, i.e., from biogas, biomass, energy recovery generation, geothermal, hydrocarbon, hydro, hydrogen, municipal solid waste, solar, tidal, wave, wind or other potential clean or renewable electricity sources recognized by the B.C. Government. The 93 per cent minimum threshold ensures that we continue to contribute toward this provincial goal and try to improve upon our current performance.

* The F2011 Plan was restated in June 2010 due to the passing of the Clean Energy Act from 90 per cent to 93 per cent.
