SITE C Clean Energy Project

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.

Protecting Bald Eagle Nests

BC Hydro and its contractors will monitor and take great care to avoid or mitigate effects on active Bald Eagle nests during Site C construction. No active Bald Eagle nests will be disturbed, and BC Hydro will only remove or relocate Bald Eagle nests when they are inactive, as confirmed by a qualified professional.

60 Days of Site C Construction

Construction of the Site C Clean Energy Project has been underway for 60 days. Construction crews have been clearing trees and vegetation at the dam site, building access roads at the dam site, upgrading public roads and preparing the site for construction of a 1,600-person worker camp.
