Site C

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.
