Abundant, clean electricity has been a cornerstone of British Columbia’s economy and quality of life for generations. That’s why BC Hydro is proposing to build the Site C Clean Energy Project (Site C), a third dam and hydroelectric generating station on the Peace River in northeast B.C. Subject to approvals, Site C would be a source of clean, renewable and cost-effective electricity in B.C. for more than 100 years.

The construction and operation of Site C would generate economic benefits for British Columbians through job creation, economic development and increased revenues for all levels of government.

Site C and Agriculture

More than 99 per cent of Class 1 to 5 agricultural land in the Peace Agricultural Region would not be affected by Site C. Approximately 2.6 million hectares would remain available for agricultural production in the region, while approximately 3,800 hectares would be unavailable.
