Public Open House on BC Hydro’s Draft Integrated Resource Plan

Community Event
Jun 14 2012 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

Notice of Public Consultation from May 28 to July 6, 2012 about BC Hydro’s Draft Integrated Resource Plan
________________________________________
 
BC Hydro is inviting the public and stakeholders to participate in the upcoming consultation on its draft Integrated Resource Plan (IRP). Last year, we sought your input into the development of the draft IRP. Now we are seeking your feedback on our draft Plan for meeting BC Hydro customers’ future electricity needs. While British Columbians are doing more than ever to conserve electricity, B.C.’s overall electricity use is expected to continue to increase as a result of projected population growth and increased demand in the large industrial sector.
 
Public consultation is being undertaken from May 28 to July 6, 2012, to gather feedback on the draft Integrated Resource Plan. BC Hydro will also be holding separate workshops for First Nations.
 
To confirm your attendance, please e-mail integrated.resource.planning@bchydro.com or call 1 888-747-4832. Please leave your name, phone number and reference the meeting date that you’ll be attending. Attendance is determined on a first come first served basis.
 
A consultation Discussion Guide and Feedback Form, along with other related materials will be available online beginning May 28, 2012.  You can also provide feedback and learn more by:
