Borealis GeoPower's Sustainaville project was featured on The Tyee website in an article entitled "Underground Heat Gives Small Town Hope" written by Erin Ward. The article goes into the details of the immediate demand for geothermal energy as a heat and power solution in the Valemount region.
In the context of potential commercial applications of geothermal, Korie Marshall, president of the Valemount Geothermal Society, is quoted as saying
"We got really excited about the spin-offs. You know, the idea of a greenhouse business, a hot pool business, a fish farm, maybe starting an education program around geothermal, having trails whether for bikes or hiking around the marsh that are heated by geothermal and having little signs that help explain to other people who visit us what’s going on.”
Borealis GeoPower's success story was recently featured on the Alberta Clean Technology Industry Alliance's (ACTia) member spotlight. The article states that "As one of Canada’s first geothermal startups, Borealis has supported a long journey of advocating to various levels of government to change laws and tax codes to accommodate geothermal energy, and to leave a better path for the future of the Canadian geothermal energy industry. Through the company’s continuous efforts, it became the first ever to receive a geothermal resource well authorization in BC and NWT and the first company to order a geothermal power plant in Canada."
