Stakeholder consultation

We’re planning for the future energy and capacity needs of our electricity customers through the development of our next Long-Term Electricity Resource Plan (LTERP). We expect to submit this plan to the BC Utilities Commission in 2016.

Resource Planning Advisory Group workshop presentations

As part of the planning process and in response to stakeholder feedback, we’ve established a Resource Planning Advisory Group (RPAG). The RPAG is a critical component of our stakeholder consultation activity and will engage stakeholders from municipalities, government, First Nations, customers, associations and organizations in the development of the LTERP.

This group of energy industry experts and other key stakeholders meet periodically to discuss important issues affecting long-term utility plans. RPAG workshop presentations are provided here for those who wish to learn more about the process.

Community workshops

We also engage with energy leaders in the communities we serve through resource planning workshop sessions held each fall.

Municipal leaders such as mayors and councillors, representatives from universities, colleges and school districts, housing developers and city energy planners attend and provide feedback. Presentations included information on electricity and natural gas since we provide both services in BC’s southern interior.
