Innergex, BC Hydro make changes to Upper Lillooet hydropower project

Canadian power producer Innergex Renewable Energy Inc. has reached agreements with utility BC Hydro regarding components of the Upper Lillooet hydropower project.

The Upper Lillooet (ULHP) project — which would have included the 74-MW Upper Lillooet, 23-MW Boulder Creek and 16-MW North Creek stations — will be located on Crown land in British Columbia.

HydroWorld.com reported that the project had been granted Environmental Assessment Certificates from the British Columbia government this past January.

The new agreement increases Upper Lillooet’s output capacity to 81.4 MW and Boulder Creek’s to 25.3 MW. Meanwhile the North Creek hydroelectric plant has been cancelled.

The ULHP is being developed by Creek Power Inc., which is a joint venture between Innergex Renewable Power Inc. and the Ledcor Power Group Ltd. Innergex (TSE: INE) owns two-thirds of Creek Power, with Ledcor holding the remainder.
