Regional Power Inc., a subsidiary of Manulife Financial, is in the business of developing, building, refurbishing, financing and operating hydroelectric power plants. Currently, Regional operates six plants with a total generating capacity of 36 megawatts. The average annual energy production from the plants is 176,500 megawatt-hours, or enough to supply a town of 30,000 people.
Products and Services:
Regional is well known in the industry for its new or "greenfield" hydroelectric developments. These are projects where a virgin site for a proposed development is selected or acquired and a design strategy is formulated to maximize the economic potential and minimize environmental impacts. The power from the proposed development is then marketed, approvals and permits are obtained, and detailed design work is completed. Once this is done, the development is built and commissioned.
Three of Regional's operating plants were "greenfteld" developments which started as an idea about how to harness a river or stream and ended up as complete, operating power plants.
The Wawatay Generating Station in northwestern Ontario is a 13.5 megawatt facility. The Sechelt Generating Station in southern British Columbia is a 16 megawatt facility and the Hluey Lakes Generating Station in northern British Columbia is a 3 megawatt facility. The expertise for these developments comes from a management team with many years of experience in the development of independent power production.
