BC Hydro says a proposed LNG plant at Woodfibre will require upgrades to power lines along the lower Sunshine Coast.

Woodfibre’s plan calls for more electricity than Hydro can provide right now.

BC Hydro’s Sue Foster outlined 3 possibilities for local councils recently.

She says they all have on thing in common, an increase in the capacity of a power line running between Gibsons and Squamish.

Depending on which option goes ahead, Hydro could also be upgrading the Malaspina substation north of Sechelt, or building a new substation at Port Mellon.
