Site C Clean Energy Project
Meeting B.C.'s future electricity needs
The Site C Clean Energy Project (Site C) is a proposed third dam and hydroelectric generating station on the Peace River in northeast B.C. Site C would 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. The project requires an investment decision by the Province and regulatory permits and authorizations before it can proceed to construction. Site C would be a source of clean, renewable and cost-effective electricity for more than 100 years.
