Our mandate


Our mandate

Clean electricity today—and for the future

It's our job to provide low-cost, reliable electricity. Through the Clean Power 2040 process, we'll consider important and sometimes competing objectives. We'll plan our system in accordance with good utility practice and consider provincial policy objectives, such as:

  • Keeping costs down for customers
  • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions through clean electricity
  • Limiting land and water impacts
  • Supporting reconciliation with Indigenous Nations
  • Supporting the growth of B.C.’s economy

Clean Power 2040 will consider government policy such as the CleanBC plan, and policy outcomes of the current comprehensive review of BC Hydro.

Legislation that will guide our plan includes B.C.'s Utilities Commission Act and the Clean Energy Act. As a crown corporation, we must file our plan with the BC Utilities Commission for review and acceptance. We expect to file it in late 2021, however a public process through the BC Utilities Commission will confirm the filing date (for further details see the BCUC's Order posted on the BCUC website [PDF,182 KB]).
