BCUC Participates in Clean Grid Initiative

Press Release

August 13, 2020

VANCOUVER – The British Columbia Utilities Commission (BCUC) is proud to be an active participant in the Clean Grid Initiative, a regional collaboration on green energy innovation between British Columbia (BC) and Washington state. As a member of the Regional Electricity and Clean Energy Policy (RECEP) workstream, the BCUC will provide a BC regulator’s perspective on how to balance clean energy innovations with safe, reliable and affordable service for customers.

The RECEP workstream is one of the many intergovernmental working groups that aim to develop a clean grid action plan for the Cascadia region by convening experts from government, industry and research institutions, and soliciting input from stakeholders, tribes and First Nations, and other regional partners.

More information about the Clean Grid Initiative is available here.

Background

On October 3, 2019, BC Premier John Horgan and Washington Governor Jay Inslee announced a joint Clean Grid Initiative as part of a longstanding commitment to expand and transition to clean energy. It is anticipated that the Clean Grid Action Plan will be announced in Fall 2020.
