Abundant, clean electricity has been a cornerstone of British Columbia’s economy and quality of life for generations. That’s why BC Hydro is building the Site C Clean Energy Project (Site C), a third dam and hydroelectric generating station on the Peace River in northeast B.C. Site C will be a source of clean, renewable and cost-effective electricity in B.C. for more than 100 years.
More than 99 per cent of Class 1 to 5 agricultural lands in the Peace Agricultural Region will not be affected by Site C. And a $20 million agriculture compensation fund will benefit agriculture production in the region.
