WHEREAS according to BC Hydro’s Transmission Interconnection Process Guidelines, connection times for a business to connect to an adequate power supply can vary from 17 months to 4.5 years;
AND WHEREAS an inadequate power supply prohibits industrial growth;
AND WHEREAS the cost of the transmission connection can vary greatly from community to community thereby creating an unfair competitive advantage:
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that NCLGA requests that the Provincial Government encourage BC Hydro and the BC Utilities Commission to institute policy changes designed to reduce connection times and to establish fair and equitable connection costs for all transmission customers.
