About Plutonic Power Corporation
Plutonic Power's vision is to provide leadership and create a legacy
through the development of renewable, reliable, clean energy projects.
Its proposed Green Power Corridor TM, comprised of 42
generation facilities (including the 2 facilities being constructed by
the Toba Montrose General Partnership), could have the capacity to meet
the annual energy needs of about 660,000 homes and offset more than 4.4
million tons of CO2 emissions every year - the equivalent of taking more
than 850,000 cars off the road. Build out of the Green Power Corridor TM,
including the current construction of the $660 million, 196 megawatt
East Toba River and Montrose Creek run-of-river hydroelectric project,
could create approximately 6,500 person-years of employment. Plutonic
Power is committed to working in partnership with First Nations,
stakeholder groups and local communities in the development of all of
its projects. By developing its suite of projects, Plutonic Power will
help British Columbia realize its goal of becoming electricity
self-sufficient by 2016 utilizing 90% clean domestic generation sources,
will create employment opportunities and will play a significant role
in the fight against climate change.
