Sustainable energy future

Leading the clean energy industry

We are amid an energy transition. Businesses are moving from fossil fuels to renewable energy to reduce their impact on the environment.

98% of the electricity BC Hydro generates is from renewable resources. We are one of the largest energy suppliers in Canada, generating and delivering clean electricity across the province. In 2022, the greenhouse gas emission (GHG) intensity of our integrated grid was an average of 11.5 metric tonnes per gigawatt hour (GWh) in carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e). This ranks B.C.'s integrated, low-carbon grid among the cleanest in western North America.

Operating in British Columbia (B.C.) provides your business with hydroelectricity at some of the most favorable rates in North America. Reliable, low-cost power reduces your business's GHGs, helping you meet Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) commitments and lower operating costs.

We also continually invest in reinforcing our integrated grid to deliver energy reliably in a changing climate, ensuring long-term resilience for your business.

Our clean energy commitments

We are an integral part of the B.C. government's CleanBC plan, one of North America's most progressive climate action plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40% by 2030 (based on 2007 levels) and reach net zero by 2050. We are collaborating with industry and local governments to take action. Together, we are protecting nature, building a low-carbon economy, and helping more businesses transition to clean energy.

We also support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that aim to protect the planet, reduce inequality, and ensure prosperity for all.
