Planning for a green future

Our environmental bottom line looks at how we manage impacts from our operations, weigh environmental values with economic ones and plan for a future with more green energy in our system.

Meeting electricity needs through conservation and energy efficiency

BC Hydro has become a leading sustainable energy company by producing and delivering electricity, in environmentally and socially responsible ways.

BC Hydro is looking at a number of ways to meet increased demand for energy in British Columbia. Our goal is to have the most economic and environmentally friendly resource acquisition program in North America in the next five years.

The first and best way to meet our future electricity needs is through conservation and energy efficiency. Through its Power Smart program, BC Hydro is a global leader in conservation, providing programs and incentives to encourage customers to use less power.
