Pre-feasibility Study for Alternative Electricity Generation Projects


Apr 2012 – Mar 2014


City of Penticton

As part of its long term planning program and goal of reducing its dependence on externally supplied electricity (and associated market pricing risks), the City of Penticton contract a survey of potential hydroelectric and thermal resources. The study evaluated eight (8) potential hydroelectric sites and the use of natural gas and biomass to fuel a thermal generation site. The evaluation included an assessment of the technical viability, economic viability, environmental impacts and social impacts of each potential project. Scope of services include:

  • Midgard produced technical document summarizing the technical viability, economic feasibility, environmental impacts and social impacts of the different hydroelectric and thermal generation options.
  • Development risks and challenges were also identified along with a development plan for potentially feasible generation assets.
