Who We Are
Powerex is a wholly owned subsidiary of BC Hydro. Since 1988, Powerex has been the exclusive marketer of BC Hydro’s clean surplus power and surplus capabilities. Over time, we have substantially grown our clean and renewable energy product offerings. We have also invested in significant electricity transmission and natural gas transportation and storage to maintain our leadership role in the movement of physical energy.
Powerex has access to a wide portfolio of market resources to support our trade activities. The surplus capability of the BC Hydro generating system and Powerex’s portfolio of transmission service rights enable Powerex to buy, sell and shape power deliveries to our customers across the Western Electric Coordinating Council (WECC) region.
Today Powerex is a highly trusted and reliable energy trader, and one of the longest-operating physical energy marketing and trading companies in the business. Our competitive advantages are the quality of our service, the expertise and integrity of our people, and our ability to reliably deliver energy products and renewable energy integration services.
We serve the needs of over 250 trade partners in energy and environmental product markets in Western North America. From our 24/7 trade floor in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia, Powerex trades wholesale energy for terms ranging from hours to days, weeks, months and longer, under standard agreements or on terms that are custom designed to meet our customers’ requirements.
Powerex meets the many needs of our customers while providing economic and environmental benefits for British Columbia.
