Record Output at Run of River's Brandywine Creek Plant

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 9, 2007) -


Run of River Power Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ROR) ("Run of River" or the "Company") is pleased to report record production for the month of June, 2007. The Company's 7.6 MW Brandywine Creek facility delivered 5,432 MWh (Mega watt hours) of electricity to BC Hydro's grid for the month, generating $310,474.61 in gross revenue to the Company. "As well, we achieved record peak output of 7.637 MW on June 23, 2007, producing 182.55 MWh for the day".

Jako Krushnisky, Run of River's president said that "Realizing the additional production is a direct result of the penstock repairs completed in early December last year. This along with above average snow pack will hopefully yield record production for the year."

"We are striving to add more electricity generation through the development of our environmentally friendly "run-of-river" projects in Upper Pitt River and Upper Mamquam River. These green projects provide a tremendous opportunity to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels while helping to restore energy self sufficiency to the province of BC with minimal impacts to the environment. We are very proud that as a producer and developer of "Eco Logo" certified green projects such as at Brandywine Creek we can be part of the solution."

Run of River Power Inc. is a Vancouver based developer and operator of green, renewable power. The Company currently sells power to BC Hydro on a long-term 20 year contract from its operating hydroelectric generation station at Brandywine Creek, near Whistler, BC.

The Company is currently developing renewable hydroelectric energy projects in two clusters that it owns the rights to develop, located near Vancouver, BC. The 10 development projects, totaling 193 MW of capacity, will generate over 670 GWh of renewable power annually, when completed, which could provide in excess of $60 Million per year in gross revenue to Run of River.
