Apr 22 15
The BC Hydro and Power Authority has signed agreements with Zero Emission Energy Developments Inc., or ZED, for new wind farms near West Kelowna, Summerland and Taylor that will provide enough electricity to power 14,000 homes a year. The agreements, with White Rock-based developer Zero Emission Energy Developments Inc., were signed under BC Hydro's Standing Offer program - a program that offers a simplified, streamlined procurement process for small clean energy projects in B.C.

The District of Tofino and The District of Ucluelet Announces Collaboration with Four Companies to Bring Improved Internet Service to West Coast of Vancouver Island Communities of Ahousaht, Tofino and Ucluelet
Dec 17 14
The District of Tofino and the District of Ucluelet announced that a collaboration with TELUS, BC Hydro, All Nations Trust Company and the Province of British Columbia will bring improved Internet service to the West Coast of Vancouver Island communities of Ahousaht, Tofino and Ucluelet. Expected to be completed in early 2016, the multi-million dollar Highway 4 fibre optic cable installation project will improve capacity, alleviate congestion, and significantly improve the quality of Internet service for residents, businesses and visitors. According to TELUS, the new fibre optic infrastructure has the potential to support home Internet at speeds up to 50 million bits per second depending on their distance from TELUS equipment (approximately 10 times faster than currently available technologies). The first stage of the fibre optic cable construction will take place from Great Central Lake to the Long Beach Junction and is expected to begin in late spring or summer 2015. BC Hydro has already begun to prepare existing poles to support the additional weight of the fibre lines. Once complete, TELUS will string the new fibre optic cable along the fortified hydro poles. While weather will dictate the pace of work during the winter months, all parties anticipate the project will be complete by early 2016.
