Strategies, plans & regulation

BC Hydro and the B.C. Utilities Commission

BC Hydro regularly plans and evaluates to ensure that customers continue to receive safe, reliable and clean electricity at fair rates. That planning and the delivery of power to British Columbians is regulated by the B.C. Utilities Commission (BCUC). Regulation also takes into consideration fair return on invested capital for BC Hydro’s shareholders – the government and residents of B.C. – and the competitive interests of B.C. businesses.

Our strategy and plans must be fiscally prudent and must always consider environmental and social costs.
