[ON-HOLD] SOP: Program documents

Program updates

March 14, 2018

BC Hydro is pursuing Electricity Purchase Agreements for five clean energy projects that are part of Impact Benefit Agreements with BC Hydro and/or are mature projects that have significant First Nations involvement.

BC Hydro supports the government’s decision to take a closer look at energy procurement to ensure the best value for BC Hydro’s customers through their review of BC Hydro this year. As a result, there are no plans at this time to issue any additional electricity purchase agreements under the SOP or Micro-SOP.

The Standing Offer and Micro-Standing Offer Programs will remain on hold until the review is complete. 

Last updated: May 2018

The Program is currently on hold until the comprehensive review of BC Hydro is completed this year. No new applications are being accepted.
