Bear Mountain Wind Park gets large investment

The Bear Mountain Wind Park project will be receiving up to $20.5 million over the next ten years through the ecoENERGY for Renewable Power program.

Prince George-Peace River M.P. Jay Hill made the announcement on Thursday afternoon, after touring the project grounds in Dawson Creek.

The Bear Mountain Wind Park will have 34 turbines with a total capacity of 102 megawatts and will cover approximately 25 hectares of land on top of Bear Mountain.

Minister Hill says the investment will help create jobs, stimulate the economy and improve the environment.

The project is owned by Bear Mountain Wind Limited Partnership, a subsidiary of AltaGas Income Trust. The electricity generated will be sold to BC Hydro.

The $1.5-billion ecoENERGY for Renewable Power program provides a one cent per kilowatt-hour incentive, with the goal of increasing Canada’s renewable electricity capacity by more than 4,000 megawatts – enough to power a million homes.
