Martin Kincade said the purpose of BC Hydro, a government-owned company, is “to provide reliable power, at low cost, for generations.” Ninety percent of the power produced and consumed in B.C. is renewable, and energy rates in B.C. are among the lowest in North America.

To close the gap between future needs and current supply, BC Hydro needs to “buy more.”

Kincade outlined BC Hydro’s acquisition activities. The ongoing Standing Offer Program is designed for smaller projects with a set price and a set contract. The Clean Power Call is a competitive process for larger clean-energy projects.
