BC Hydro’s Site C dam rises from the historic Peace River

Karen Bakker, Canada Research Chair at UBC, was interviewed for a Vancouver Sun story on the continued construction of the Site C dam on the Peace River.

“B.C. has significant unused capacity to generate more electricity from existing dams,” she said. “Site C is not the cheapest option, if we look at the bigger picture.”

She said solar and wind power should be considered.

The story also appeared on the Ottawa Citizen, The ProvinceMontreal Gazette and Saskatoon Star Phoenix.
