HOW CAN YOU HELP – AND BENEFIT?
 Help us deliver message to BC Government and BC Hydro:
 Tumbler Ridge and Chetwynd are endowed with “world class” wind energy
resource.
 Let BC Government and BC Hydro know the world’s leading renewable power
developers, owners and operators (like EDF EN Canada) are here already:
 Making regional investments near Tumbler Ridge and Chetwynd; and
 Developing low cost power with social license for the benefit of all British
Columbians
 Three Peace Region EDF EN Canada wind projects can build as early as 2016.
 Potential for near term $1.8 Billion regional investment.
 Opportunities for local construction contracts and long term careers in operations
and maintenance.
