About us

About FortisBC Alternative Energy Services Inc.

We own, operate and maintain in-building thermal energy systems for space heating and cooling and domestic hot water. We use both renewable and recoverable technologies such as:

  • heat pumps
  • hydronic systems
  • geoexchange
  • waste heat recovery
  • variable refrigerant flow systems

Building energy systems are becoming increasingly complex, with a focus on improved performance. That’s why we work with developers and mechanical consultants every day to determine the innovative system technologies that provide the best energy solution for each project.

Service and experience

Since 2005, we’ve offered conventional and innovative system technologies.

We own 38 operating projects across 58 sites in BC, providing service to nearly seven million square feet, which constitutes approximately 60,000 MWh of thermal energy per year. Plus, we offer 24/7 emergency service to our customers.

Our relationship with FortisBC

FortisBC Alternative Energy Services Inc., an affiliate of FortisBC Energy Inc., is a wholly owned subsidiary of Fortis Inc., the largest investor-owned energy delivery utility in Canada, with assets exceeding $50 billion.

In 2005 we began, as part of Terasen Gas, to invest in alternative energy infrastructure. In 2011, under FortisBC Energy Inc., we received the British Columbia Utility Commission (BCUC)’s support to begin developing thermal energy services across the province. In 2014, the business was separated from FortisBC Energy Inc., and is regulated under the BCUC’s Thermal Energy Systems Regulatory Framework Guidelines. Today we are a leader in BC’s thermal energy industry.
