The B.C. Utilities Commission (BCUC) is our energy regulator. It’s tasked with ensuring providers like BC Hydro serve British Columbians fairly.

Over the past 10 months, the BCUC has been hearing arguments for and against BC Hydro’s proposed amendments to Rate Schedule 1289 — the Net Metering program. And today is the last day for British Columbians to have their say.

A robust Net Metering program allows people to work together to create local power and get a fair return for their efforts. However, out of the blue, BC Hydro reduced the rate, stopped people from sharing power and placed restrictions that prevent people from cooperatively producing power. Now, they’re trying to make those changes permanent.

Send a pre-written letter to the BC Utilities Commission now , telling them to reject BC Hydro’s ruinous changes. https://dogwoodbc.ca/petitions/bcuc-defend-local-power/

BC Hydro’s changes to RS1289 will kneecap engaged British Columbians from harnessing their own solar power. Don’t let them get away with this.

Tell the BC Utilities Commission you oppose BC Hydro’s amendments throttling the Net Metering program. You only have until the end of todayFriday, February 14 — to submit your letter.

Thank you for standing up for local power,


P.S. BC Hydro is a big fish in a little pond — they’re trying to throttle a budding renewable revolution by kneecapping engaged citizens who are invested in producing their own power. Don’t let them get away with it: send this pre-written message to the BCUC right now telling them you oppose BC Hydro’s amendments to the Net Metering program. And if you want, you can add your own personalized message as well.
