BC government plans alternative energy task force

The BC government wants to maximize the potential of wind, tidal, solar, and run-of-the-river power projects and will appoint an Alternative Energy and Power Task Force to report directly to cabinet on how to promote their development, it says in its 2005 throne speech. Meanwhile, in his February 15 budget speech, BC Finance Minister Colin Hansen says his government will provide property tax exemptions for environmentally friendly hydro projects and is exploring similar exemptions for other alternative energy sources, such as wind and geothermal.
