British Columbia’s clean power industry has attracted more than $8.6 billion in investment


This number was presented in the report "BC Clean Energy Projects: Investment, Job Creation and Community Contributions", recently published by the Clean Energy Association of British Columbia (Canada). The money is spent in local economies, including the province’s north and interior regions, what allows to support over 20 000 direct, full-time equivalent person years of construction employment in every region of the province in the works on current and forthcoming projects.
There are 106 clean energy projects currently in operation or under development in all regions of the province. 25 percent of BC Hydro’s energy supply comes from independent power producers, of which 14 percent is provided by stand-alone clean-energy producers.Read more at www.cleanenergybc.org
