Site C Clean Energy Project



Site C to provide more than 100 years of affordable, reliable clean power

The Site C Clean Energy Project (Site C) is a third dam and hydroelectric generating station on the Peace River in northeast B.C.

Approved by the Province of B.C. on December 16, 2014, construction of the project is expected to begin in the summer of 2015.

Site C will provide 1,100 megawatts (MW) of capacity, and produce about 5,100 gigawatt hours (GWh) of electricity each year — enough energy to power the equivalent of about 450,000 homes per year in B.C.

The Site C project received environmental approvals from the federal and provincial governments in October 2014, then got the green light from the Province of B.C. in December, 2014.

Site C will be a source of clean, reliable and affordable electricity for more than 100 years.
