BC Hydro and Power Authority (BC Hydro) is Canada’s third-largest electric utility and a provincial Crown Corporation. It is the main electricity distributor in the Province of British Columbia, serving over 5 million people.
Electricity trade enables Powerex to put BC Hydro’s surplus capabilities to their highest and best use when they are not needed locally. This trade provides economic and environmental benefits for British Columbia. All income generated by Powerex is returned to BC Hydro, which helps the utility keep electricity rates amongst the lowest in North America.
