Alterra, Sliammon First Nation reach agreement for Bute Inlet hydropower transmission line

BUTE INLET, British Columbia, Canada 6/8/12 (PennWell) — An agreement between the Alterra Power Corporation and Sliammon First Nation will allow for the transmission of power from the proposed 1,027-MW Bute Inlet hydropower project.

The agreement will allow Alterra to develop the transmission infrastructure needed to carry power from the Bute Inlet project’s 17 run-of-river sites on a path that is expected to use the existing Toba Montrose corridor.

All of the Bute project’s generating sites are located within the traditional lands of the Homalco First Nation, though the transmission line will also cross the territories of the Klahoose, Sliammon and Sechelt First Nations.
