Interrobang // Notes // BC Hydro does not like you generating your own electicity?

To justify Site C, BC Hydro pretended that alternatives to new hydro power were expensive and unreliable.In fact, cheap electricity created by wind and solar frightens the utility. It’s one thing for consumers to buy zero power from the grid but it is something else if those customers are regularly selling electricity to BC Hydro.
