ROR Power Registers Projects for BC Hydro Bioenergy Call

VANCOUVER, July 16, 2010 /CNW/ - Run of River Power Inc. (TSX-V: ROR) ("ROR Power" or "the Company") today announced it has registered its Suskwa and Tsilhqot'in projects for inclusion in BC Hydro's Bioenergy Phase 2 call.

Through its subsidiaries, ROR Power is advancing the development of the Tsilhqot'in plant in Hanceville, BC, and the Suskwa plant near New Hazelton, BC. Each project will have generator nameplate capacity of 34 MW. The projects will enable the efficient incineration of biomass such as beetle-damaged trees, decadent-forest trees, forestry waste and sawmill residue to generate electricity.

ROR Power is currently preparing its project proposals and intends to submit them prior to the October 28, 2010, deadline. Selection of preferred proponents by BC Hydro is currently scheduled for mid-January 2011, with final approvals and EPA signings expected in April 2011.
