Since the release of Clean Energy BC’s white paper titled “Electrification of BC”, electrification has generated quite the buzz across the province. “Electrification of BC” has drummed up attention and been featured in 9 news articles. Low-carbon electrification has surfaced at the forefront of many people’s minds, including the provincial government.
Last week, Globe & Mail’s Justine Hunter published “The electrification of B.C.: How a 2030 deadline is tipping the balance of power”.
Jae Mather, executive director of Clean Energy BC, calculates the province will require about 50 per cent more electricity production than it has now to meet demand in 2030. Site C will provide about 10 per cent of that. With the cost of renewable energy dropping, smaller projects, especially wind power, will likely do the rest. The additional infrastructure needed will drive up energy costs, and that should help consumers embrace conservation.
