Independent power producer projects

Beat Mountain wind turbines

We work with independent power producers to electrify B.C.

To support B.C.'s energy needs as they change and grow over time, we purchase power from independent power producers (IPPs). IPPs develop and operate projects using resources such as wind, water and biomass and can include power production companies, municipalities, and Indigenous Nations.

New power procurement

On April 3, 2024, we issued a competitive Call for Power.

Since June 2023, we've engaged with First Nations, independent power producers and stakeholders on our approach to acquire approximately 3,000 gigawatt-hours (GWh) per year of clean or renewable energy from new resources. 

Supply lists and maps

Electricity purchase agreements

Electricity purchase agreements (EPAs) are contractual agreements, typically long-term, that we put in place with our independent power producers to formalize the amount of electricity they’ll supply, the pricing, and all other terms.

EPA renewals

In our 2021 Interated Resource Plan, we developed a renewal program for clean or renewable EPAs that were set to expire.
