BC Hydro is inviting local communities, stakeholders and the public to participate in upcoming Project Definition Consultation for the Site C Clean Energy Project (Site C). The consultation is taking place September 10 through October 19, 2012.

Site C is a proposed third dam and hydroelectric generating station on the Peace River. Site C is being proposed as part of BC Hydro’s overall program to invest in and renew the province’s electricity system.

BC Hydro is undertaking Project Definition Consultation to gather input on the following topics:

  • Worker Accommodation
  • Transportation
  • Clearing
  • Agriculture

How input will be used
