British Columbia feed-in-tariff (FIT) could be launched in autumn 2011
At the BC Hydro Standing Offer Program changes and process review webcast and telephone conference held on February 23, 2011, BC Hydro noted that the British Columbia (BC) provincial government is currently working on their feed-in-tariff (FIT) regulation which they anticipate to issue in spring 2011. The launch of the FIT program is expected within 6 months after the regulation is issued. According to this timeline the FIT could be introduced in fall 2011. BC Hydro notes that wind will be part of the FIT but it will be in "non-interconnected areas".
