Run-of-river hydropower, wind, geothermal, biomass and other renewables such as solar, wave and tidal energy are the most plentiful, environmentally-sound renewable energy sources available in BC.
Our province is growing and so are its energy needs. BC Hydro forecasts that our province’s electricity needs will grow by as much as 40 per cent over the next 20 years. Many people are unaware that British Columbia actually imports coal-fired power from the United States and Alberta to make up for shortfalls in provincial supply.
To satisfy this need, ROR Power develops two forms of green energy. Hydroelectric (known as run-of-river) facilities harness the power of gravity and mountain streams to create electricity, while biomass generates power by consuming beetle-damaged and dead trees, forestry waste and sawmill residue.
