Iskut Extension Project

Major update: The Iskut Extension Project is now in service  

Moving power in northern B.C.

The Northwest Transmission Line is now electrifying a part of northwest B.C. that previously was not on the BC Hydro electrical grid. And BC Hydro has purchased a new transmission line that extends the transmission system another 93 kilometres north. Combined with a new substation and distribution line, the Iskut Extension Project will provide clean power for potential industrial developments that may be built in the area, and is delivering clean electricity to the community of Iskut for the first time.
