The latest news and updates from BC Hydro

October 24, 2016

Hi [first_name],
It's being described as more of a small town than a worker camp. The Site C worker camp is now open, on time and on budget, and features 1,600 rooms, a gym, convenience store, movie theatre and lounge. The latest vandalism to our electrical system cut power to two large companies north of Terrace, as a vandal shot out a glass insulator on the Northwest Transmission Line. And in the wake of last Thursday's Great British Columbia ShakeOut drill, a reminder to fully prepare your family for earthquakes by having a plan and an emergency kit in place.
