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

May 16, 2016

Electric vehicle owners just got some great news with the opening of a public DC fast-charging station just above the soccer fields near Vancouver's PNE. The Empire Fields station is part of a B.C.-wide program, supported by BC Hydro, to install 30 fast-charge stations. We were also busy this past week promoting an easier way to remember how to get it right when you spot a fallen power line. It's Down. Danger. Dial. Finally, it's official that BC Hydro is purchasing lands in a potential flood inundation zone at the Jordan River on Vancouver Island.

The BC Electric Company headquarters were built in Vancouver back in 1957 prior to the organization evolving into the Crown corporation known as BC Hydro. The building still stands tall on Burrard street today, housing condos known as the Electra Building. Thanks to our Power Pioneers for this week's photo.
