BCUC dismisses criticisms of BC Hydro’s Call for Tenders

On January 23, 2004, the BC Utilities Commission encouraged BC Hydro to stay the course with its Call for Tenders for power solutions for Vancouver Island. Dismissing criticisms submitted by an unlikely mix of parties including the GSX Concerned Citizens Coalition, BC’s major industrial electricity users, and especially Norske Canada, the BCUC didn’t modify the CFT at all. The CFT remains heavily biased in favour of Hydro’s own VIGP and GSX – the fast ferries of power solutions, and $710 million dollars worth of greenhouse gas generating infrastructure.
