McLymont Creek Hydroelectric Project
Located in British Columbia, approximately 1,000 kilometres (km) northwest of Vancouver, the proposed McLymont Creek Project is a run-of-river hydroelectric facility with a targeted output of 66 megawatts (MW).
The project will capture the energy produced by the natural flow and elevation drop of the creek to produce and deliver clean, renewable power to BC Hydro through the Forrest Kerr 287-kV transmission system to the proposed BC Hydro Northwest Transmission Line (NTL) substation at Bob Quinn. All power produced will be sold to BC Hydro for distribution throughout the Provincial power grid.
The project will contribute to the Province of British Columbia’s goal to achieve energy self-sufficiency by 2016. The project will also help the Province meet its clean energy needs in an environmentally and socially responsible manner by offsetting the use of electricity generated from fossil fuels.
On a national and global scale, the project will provide a clean, renewable energy source that will help meet Canada’s commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
As part of the continuation of the Forest Kerr project BV Electric will be instrumental in servicing this Hydroelectric project.
