BC Hydro

Columbia Power + BC Hydro

Columbia Power has long-term power purchase agreements in place with BC Hydro for the Arrow Lakes Generating Station and the Brilliant Expansion Generating Station. BC Hydro also acts as the dispatch operator for the Arrow Lakes Generating Station.

Beginning in 2012, Columbia Power developed and constructed three public boat launch facilities on the Arrow Lakes Reservoir on behalf of BC Hydro. The projects included replacement of the Nakusp ramp, a new ramp at Anderson Point, and upgrades to the existing Edgewood boat ramp. The ramps were completed in 2015.

In 2014, Columbia Power undertook a study of potential options for BC Hydro’s Elko Dam and Generating Station; BC Hydro deferred redevelopment of the facility in 2016.
