Cloudworks gearing up for public info session

Three Harrison Lake area run-of-river projects to be discussed

Three run-of-river hydroelectric projects in the Harrison Lake area are moving forward in planning, according to a recent press release by Cloudworks Energy.

The three projects are at Tretheway Creek, Shovel Creek and Big Silver Creek, and all are in the Harrison Lake area.

Cloudworks Energy is a B.C.-based renewable hydroelectric developer that is wholly owned by Innergex Renewable Energy Inc. A recent press release announced that Cloudworks proposes to construct the three run-of-river hydroelectric projects, which will produce 23, 13 and 36 MW respectively.

More information regarding the Projects is available at www.tsbhydro.com.

Cloudworks is planning an open house in mid-January, but no date or location has been set.

An Application for an Environmental Assessment Certificate for each of the Projects was submitted to the BC Environmental Assessment Office and the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency on November 14, 2011 and is currently under a 30-day review process.  Cloudworks has decided that the Environmental Assessment of the Statlu Creek Project will not be submitted together with the Big Silver/Shovel and Tretheway Projects at this time.

Details of the proposed projects will be presented at the Open House and any questions or concerns from community members and interest groups will be addressed.

For more information, visit the BCEAO website at www.eao.gov.bc.ca.

Cloudworks is the company that helped bring power to residents at Tipella Creek last year, as reported by this newspaper.

Cloudworks held a public information session regarding run-of-river projects this April in Harrison Memorial Hall.
