Hydroelectricity is electricity produced from the kinetic energy contained in moving water. It is also one of the most efficient and lowest cost methods of large scale power generation, making it highly competitive with other sources of electricity. A Hydroelectric project produces no direct waste, and has no greenhouse gas emissions. It is considered to be clean green renewable energy. Alaska Hydro Corporation is currently working to develop the More Creek Hydroelectric Project (the “Project”) which will be located on More Creek which flows into the Iskut River approximately 130 km north of the town of Stewart in northwestern British Columbia.
The Project will store water at the head of the More Creek canyon using an 84 m high roller compacted concrete dam to create a water storage reservoir.The anticipated size of the water storage reservoir will be approximately 3000 ha at full operating level with a live storage (useable) volume of approximately 870 million cubic meters. The maximum output of the Project facility is estimated between 70-75 MW resulting in a project that would generate approximately 346 GWh of energy per year at the site.” Alaska Hydro Corporation is engaged in the development of renewable energy projects focused primarily on hydroelectric power generation for resource development in northern climates.
