Solar is useful, but when the take up rate gets above a certain point Hydro will raise costs for you to connect to the grid etc. It will be like CRD water, you're not using enough we have to raise rates. But with Hydro it wont be the cost of power it will be all taxes, fees etc.


Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.

Guess it depends on whether it helps them or not. At a certain point they might conclude that it is cheaper for them to encourage solar than to build another Site C.
There is some benefit to having a crown Corp for power. In regions with private power companies the utilities are actively fighting solar just as you describe
