This Week
The latest news and updates from BC Hydro

January 23, 2017

Hi [first_name],
As we look to replace two aging substations in downtown Vancouver, where land is expensive and scarce, we're considering going underground with a novel idea we're calling seed. BC Hydro crews were called in to make the area safe after a small plane crashed into power lines north of Duncan. And the latest job statistics report from the Site C clean energy project shows 82% of workers are from B.C.

The big freeze is gone (for now) in the Lower Mainland. Wet weather has cleared up much of what was left of snow, making it easier for dogs and their owners to enjoy this off leash area under our right of way in Coquitlam's Mundy Park.
