Industrial electricity interconnection

Large commercial and industrial customers needing to connect to our electrical transmission system, as well as net metering customers and Independent Power Producers (IPPs), can find interconnection information here.

You may need an industrial connection if you:

  • require a connected load of 5,000 kW or more
  • have one or more large pieces of equipment in your facility at or over 2,000 hp
  • build, own, operate and maintain your own electrical substation and transmission line connected to FortisBC's transmission system
  • require a unique or specialized distribution system connection

Large industrial connections can either be:

  • Transmission service: for load connection requirements over 63 kV or
  • Distribution service: for load connection requirements of 25 kV and under
