Plutonic Power is an emerging energy producer in British Columbia. Its proposed 19 projects have a design capacity of over 870 MW and the potential to generate approximately 2900 GW.h per annum of green energy - enough energy to meet the annual energy needs of approximately 300,000 homes. Included in the 19 projects is the creation of the Green Power Corridor, a series of non-storage hydroelectric projects in southwestern BC, which hold the potential to catapult British Columbia to the forefront of green energy generation in North America. The completion of the Green Power Corridor would be through one of the largest single private sector green energy investments ever made in British Columbia and would create over 2,400 person-years of employment.

The Company has entered the East Toba and Montrose, Rainy River and Emory Creek projects into the 2006 BC Hydro Call for Tender (CFT). These three projects will have a combined capacity of 217.5 MW. Contracts are expected to be awarded by BC Hydro on Thursday, July 27.

Plutonic is committed to continuously work with First Nations, stakeholder groups and local communities in the development of its run of river projects.

On behalf of the Board of Directors,



Donald McInnes, President
