Plutonic Power Corporation and GE Energy Financial Services have signed a memorandum of understanding to partner on a bid to develop approximately 1,000 megawatts (MW) of clean, run-of-river hydroelectric capacity in the Toba and Bute Inlets along the southwest coast of British Columbia. With approximate capital costs of US $4 billion, the joint investment would be the largest single private sector investment in hydroelectric generation in Canada.

Plutonic Power and GE Energy Financial Services intend to jointly bid the Upper Toba Valley and Bute Inlet Projects into the 2008 BC Hydro Clean Power Call Request for Proposals in November.
