Sorgent.e Hydro Canada announced on Thursday that it had signed a 40-year standing offer program electricity agreement with BC Hydro for its Serpentine Creek hydro project.

The standing offer base price for both projects will be $104.39/MWh.

According to the company, the Serpentine and Clemina projects will create a flow of benefits to Simpcw First Nation and local communities, maximizing the social, environmental and economic impact of these new developments. With the addition of Serpentine and Clemina, Sorgent.e, Simpcw, BC Hydro, and North Thompson Valley and all the involved stakeholders will further contribute to achieving global climate action goals.
