Hydro’s incentive program that pays home solar producers for electricity beyond what they need themselves is the cutting edge of climate collapse amelioration.  These rebates have been available for 14 years; Hydro has 1,330 customers; 95% of them installed solar.  Hydro will apply to the BC Utilities Commission to end the part of the program that allows production beyond the owner’s need.  It will continue for those already on that track, but would be unavailable for new applicants.

The federal government, which approved the $10.7-billion project in 2014, has served notice to the courts that it will not oppose an injunction that aims to halt construction.

TRAMPLES INDIGENOUS RIGHTS
The government’s decision to build the dam makes it abundantly clear that the struggle to defend indigenous rights and the environment must be build outside of parliament

BC Hydro says it faces substantial new costs for the Site C dam after agreeing to suspend work on a portion of the construction until the courts can hear an injunction application this summer by a First Nation seeking to block the $10.7-billion project.

The West Moberly First Nation is seeking an interim injunction to halt the project pending a full civil trial that aims to kill Site C. A hearing on the interim injunction application is expected to begin in July.
