Vancouver, Canada (PressExposure) December 30, 2008 -- Syntaris Power Corporation is pleased to announce that it has submitted three hydroelectric projects into the BC Hydro 2008 Clean Call for Power. The projects represent a total estimated capacity of approximately 104 Megawatts of electricity.
âOur top notch professional team worked hard on developing these submissions and we are confident that the quality of these projects will make them extremely attractive to BC Hydro,â says Syntaris Power President and CEO Robert Fraser. âWe are also pleased with the support we have received from our First Nations partners and look forward to working together on building and commissioning these projects in the near future.â
The projects submitted to the BC Hydro Call for Clean Power are:
â¢ Kinskuch River Project, located 27 km east of Stewart, BC which is estimated to generate 76 MW of power
â¢ Maselpanik Creek Project, located 51 km east of Chilliwack and 35 km south of Hope, BC which is estimated to generate 13 MW of power in the Fraser Valley.
â¢ Culliton Creek Project, located near Squamish, which is estimated to generate 15 MW of power
These three projects combined have the potential to displace over 210,000 tonnes of CO2 annually*, equivalent to the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by over 42,000 cars per year. Development of these three hydroelectric projects will help the province reach its goal of achieving energy self-sufficiency by 2016.
The BC Energy Plan requires that 90 per cent of all new electrical generation will come from clean or renewable resources.
* Based on the calculation that for every Mega-watt-hour of green power produced, 0.52Tonnes of CO2 is offset from thermal power plants
