Clean & renewable energy

The B.C. advantage

Clean-tech and high-tech businesses that operate in British Columbia (B.C.) benefit from reliable, renewable hydroelectricity. Flexible, low-cost power improves an operation's overall carbon footprint and long-term business resilience. For clean fuel producers, powering with hydroelectricity also improves the value of the final product.

Access clean energy

98% of the power in B.C. comes from clean, renewable sources. In 2021, the greenhouse gas (GHG) intensity of BC Hydro’s integrated grid was an average of 9.7 tonnes per GWh carbon dioxide (CO2e), outperforming Canada’s 2019 average of 25 tonnes per GWh by more than 60%, making B.C.’s integrated, low-carbon grid among the cleanest in western North America.
