What's happened in the last four years, since 2010, that BC Hydro has somehow doubled the capacity of Site C without increasing the reservoir or downsizing the generator but doubling their longevity so as to last twice as long AND at the same time maintaining the artist renderings the same, ....... commanded the rain Gods to fall and received Party pledges from the drought Devils?
Meeting B.C.'s future electricity needs to 2110 - Premier Christy Clark / Minister Bill Bennett .....
Subject to environmental certification, Site C would be a source of clean, renewable and cost-effective electricity for more than 100 years. - BC Hydro 2014
There's nothing on tape that backs up the 100 year claim by our Hide-and-Go-seeking-Photo-Op Premier (Clark) but its obvious that there is a stated (video) discrepancy between Premier Gordon Campbell's April 19, 2010 announcement for Site C Third Phase to the written, current, electrifying, Premier Christy Clark's and her sidekick Bill Bennett.
|I swear.... that ....|
".... I am pleased to announce that the Site C Clean energy project will be moving to the third phase so that we can build a future fifty years to reflect the last fifty years in British Columbia. ...." Premier Gordon Campbell:
2010 + 50 = 2060
|Moving onto the Third Phase of Site C|
HUDSON’S HOPE – The B.C. government announced today that it will move forward with the Site C Clean Energy Project (Site C). The Site C project will be the third dam on the Peace River in northeast B.C., and will be a source of clean and renewable energy for over 100 years, producing enough electricity to power approximately 410,000 homes per year. - BC Government News Release April 19, 2010
2010 - 50 = 1960
A half century ago, B.C. was encouraged to use abundant electricityPosted by Marc Stoiber
Energy conservation is now part of B.C., where most of our electricity comes from clean sources, and as citizens, we pride ourselves on being Power Smart.
But it wasn't always that way. Leaf through books like Voices From Two Rivers and Gaslight To Gigawatts and you discover our relationship with power has morphed beyond recognition over the past half century.
So how did we go from 'Power Means Progress' — the catchphrase of BC Hydro in the 1960s — to 'Power Smart' today? The story is a fascinating study in our evolution as a society.
Electric power — use it freely!
