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.

100 Days of Site C Construction

Construction of the Site C Clean Energy Project has been underway for 100 days. Construction crews have been busy undertaking site preparation activities, including: clearing trees and vegetation at the dam site, upgrading public roads, building access roads at the dam site, constructing a 1,600-person worker camp, excavation and slope stabilization, and starting work on a temporary construction bridge across the Peace River.

Enhancing Transportation Infrastructure

As part of a community agreement with the District of Taylor, BC Hydro provided funding to the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure to install continuous street lighting along Highway 97 through Taylor, changeable message signs and a highway webcam to provide motorists with advance notification of weather and road conditions.
