Electricity resource planning

We continuously monitor trends in energy policy, customer demand, developing technologies and other factors to create strategies that meet the energy and capacity needs of our customers.

Long Term Electric Resource Plan

We’re planning for the future energy and capacity needs of our electricity customers through the development of our Long Term Electric Resource Plan (LTERP). This plan ensures we continue providing safe, reliable and cost-effective electricity to our customers for years to come.

Our long term resource planning involves looking ahead 20 years to identify energy efficiency opportunities, energy supply requirements and infrastructure needs. Technology advancements, renewable energy options and growth in distributed generation are changing the way customers use energy. These and other issues will be explored through our long term resource planning process.

The outcome of the planning process is an action plan of activities that will allow us to continue to meet the energy and capacity needs of our customers and stakeholders over the longer term.

We submitted this plan to the British Columbia Utilities Commission (BCUC) on November 30, 2016. We’ll begin developing our next LTERP in 2019, submitting it by December 1, 2021, as directed by the BCUC.
