New website helps rural BC invest in green energy

First Nations and rural communities in B.C. looking to profit from partnerships with renewable energy companies have a new resource tool.

The new Green Energy website provides information on the economic opportunities that a boom in renewable energy is expected to provide in northern B.C.

Several run-of-river and wind power projects approved recently in B.C. have been in partnership with First Nations communities, and an industrial boom in northern B.C. is expected to provide opportunities for renewable energy projects – including biomass thermal power in areas affected by the mountain pine beetle.
