About the Call

We issued a competitive call for power at the beginning of April 2024.

The 2024 Call for Power Request for Proposals (RFP) is structured to help ensure B.C. has sufficient clean or renewable energy to meet future needs. It aligns with the 2021 Integrated Resource Plan, which indicated the need to acquire approximately 3,000 GWh/year of additional energy as early as late fall 2028.

The objectives of the Call are to acquire energy from:

  • Clean or renewable resources that are cost-effective for our ratepayers.
  • Projects that can come online as early as fall 2028.
  • Projects that have a meaningful First Nations partnership component.

Prior to issuing the RFP, we completed our engagement process to gather input from First Nations, Independent Power Producers and stakeholders on our planned approach.
