Facts about the BC Hydro Task Force
  • The BC Hydro Task Force was created in March 2023 as part of the Province’s new energy-action framework to ensure that B.C. is well positioned to electrify the economy and industry as the province transitions to a clean-energy future.
  • These are the first of a series of recommendations the task force will submit to the Province over the coming months to:
    • increase B.C.’s supply of clean and renewable energy;
    • accelerate priority transmission infrastructure necessary to support electrification objectives and help meet B.C.’s climate change targets;
    • modernize the energy regulatory and legal framework;
    • protect ratepayers and ensure the cost of B.C. power-system infrastructure is sustainable;
    • accelerate customer connections; and
    • enhance work with municipalities.
