This Week. The latest news and updates from BC Hydro.

January 25, 2016

Site C is one of the biggest projects to ever take place in B.C., and with construction underway, it's a busy time. President and CEO Jessica McDonald toured the dam site earlier in January, and sat down for an interview with the Alaska Highway News to talk about the latest with the project and BC Hydro's plans. The south Peace River region has reason to celebrate this week, with the official completion of the Dawson Creek-Chetwynd Area transmission line. Business in the area is growing rapidly, and with more reliable power and access to the BC Hydro grid, it's going to grow faster than ever. And hundreds of people in Campbell River got a chance to see a spectacular show at Elk Falls. More than 10 times the usual amount of water went down the canyon – watch the video.
