An Interactive journey to clean energy.
  • THE ENERGY STORY
    "Hydro To Home"


    An interactive Journey to clean energy. Learn how all the rain and snow that falls in our province is harnessing as energy, how it makes its way to our homes and ultimately powers our lifestyles.
  • RAIN & RESERVOIRS
    REPLENISHING OUR RESERVOIRS
    Snow pack and rain combined to supply a rich resource of water for us to harness in our many reservoirs. these reservoirs are constantly being naturally replenished to store this energy source for when we need it most.
  • GENERATION
    GENERATING CLEAN ENERGY

    The water is stored behind a dam wall. Gates open and close regulating the water flow through the penstocks when the huge pipes that funnel water through the turbines. This forces the turbines to spin, when enables the generators to create clean electricity as we need it without unnecessary wastes.

  • TRANSMISSION
    TRANSPORTING OUR POWER

    Voltage is now increasing to up to 500,000 volts to avoid energy waste as it travels across the grid. This transmission grid acts as a super efficient electricity highway, which transports power over mountains and valleys to supply energy to our communities
  • DISTRIBUTION
    SHARING OUR ENERGY
    Voltage is reduced to substations for business and residential use, then shared throughout distibution lines. Our repair team are constantly battling wind, snow and falling trees to keep the lines up and the power flowing.
  • METERS
    MEASURING OUR ENERGY USAGE
    Today, electricity flows through analog meters and is read manually to generate a bill. With the introduction of new smart meters, we will be connected directly to the grid. We will have faster outage restoration, bills will no longer be estimated, and we'll have choice and control over our electricity consumption.
  • IN HOME
    POWERING OUR LIFESTYLES
    More Then 300,000 British Columbians have joined Team Power Smart to collectively save thousands of kilowatts hours of electricity. Using power wisely brings BC closer to energy self sufficiency while ensuring our lifestyles are powered by clean energy.
