Statement regarding BCUC decision on the Okanagan Capacity Upgrade Project

Dec 22, 2023

SURREY, B.C.—December 22, 2023: We have received and are reviewing the BCUC’s decision, but we are disappointed that our application to develop this important piece of infrastructure has been denied. The Okanagan Capacity Upgrade project is required to meet peak energy demand in the Okanagan region, which occurs during colder winter months when customers rely on gas to heat their homes and businesses.

FortisBC’s infrastructure is vital to the delivery of renewable and low-carbon gases, which are critical to the Province’s ability to meet its CleanBC targets.
