Hawkeye Energy Corporation is proposing to build 12 runof-
river hydroelectric generation facilities with a combined capacity of 151 MW in the Toba Inlet, Powell River and Jervis Inlet drainage basins. Depending on the selected route to Malaspina Substation, 135-150 km of 230 kV transmission system will be built.
Klinaklini is a proposal to develop a hydroelectric project on the east branch of the Klinaklini River, above its
confluence with Dorothy Creek, near the head of Knight Inlet. Proposed average generating capacity will be 280 MW with 800 MW during high flow conditions. The site is located on the mainland coast, 150 km north of Campbell River. A 10.3 metre tunnel, 17.25 km long, will conduct water from the diversion point to the powerhouse. The project includes a proposed 230 kV transmission line of 180 km, with aerial crossing of Johnstone Strait, to Campbell River.
In October 2009, Pristine Power Corp. acquired a 57% controlling interest in the Klinaklini project from Kleana Power Corporation, a company of Dr. Alexander Eunall.
In May 2010, BC's Minister of Environment stated that the boundaries of Dzawadi/Upper Klinaklini River Conservancy would not be adjusted to accommodate the project, and in June, the project was dropped from BC Hydro's Clean Power Call.
In August, Pristine Power wrote off its controlling interest in the project. Presumably, ownership reverts to Kleana and Dr. Eunall. By 2011, Pristine had become a wholly owned subsidiary of Veresen Inc.
Alterra & GE (formerly, Plutonic Power Corporation & GE) proposed originally to construct three hydroelectric projects located at the head of Toba Inlet, approximately 100 km north of Powell River, BC with a total installed capacity of 133 MW. Major components included Dalgleish Creek (30 MW), Jimmie Creek (56 MW), and Upper Toba River (47 MW). The produced energy will be conveyed via approximately 2.3 km of transmission line for interconnection to the 230 kV transmission line serving the East Toba and Montrose River Hydroelectric Project. A full description of the project is included in the company's application for an Environmental Assessment
The electricity purchase agreement (EPA) signed with BC Hydro is for 124 MW from just two of the streams- Jimmie Creek and the Upper Toba River. Dalgleish Creek was excluded because capacity at the Saltery Bay substation was insufficient for the potential load.
Plutonic Power Corporation states that the Knight Inlet Project consists of six generation facilities and will generate a nominal 247 megawatts (MW). It has not been submitted to a BC Hydro call for power.
Plutonic Power Corporation originally listed Freda Creek among its generation projects. In 2012, the City of Powell River and the Tla’amin (Sliammon) First Nation announced that Tees'Kwat Land Holdings Ltd had acquired the water application, and that they were jointly forming a company, and would advance the project together. The proponents are hoping to bypass the BC Hydro competitive "calls" process and be directly awarded an EPA with BC Hydro. Freda Creek is just north of Earl's Cove. The project could have a nominal capacity of 35 megawatts (MW).
Alterra (formerly, Plutonic Power Corporation & GE completed the East Toba River and Montrose Creek generation facilities in November 2010. At the end of 2012, GE sold its interest to Fiera Axium Infrastructure. East Toba has a nominal capacity of 123 megawatts (MW), and Montrose Creek 73 MW for a total of 196 MW. 148 km of transmission line was built from Toba Inlet to Earl's Cove, and 60 km of access roads. A full description of the project is included in the company's application for an Environmental Assessment
Alterra Power Corp., (formerly, Plutonic Power Corporation) is proposing to construct the largest cluster of hydroelectric projects ever built in British Columbia, on streams feeding into Bute Inlet. The company claims it will have a "nameplate" capacity of 1027 megawatts (MW) - 10% of the total hydroelectric generating capacity in BC Hydro's legacy dams - from 17 powerhouses.
