Completed Projects/Testimonials

Upper Lillooet Hydroelectric Project The Upper Lillooet Hydro Project includes two run-of-river, clean energy generation facilities located in the Pemberton Valley: 81.4 MW Upper Lillooet River Hydroelectric Facility 25.3 MW Boulder (Pebble) Creek Hydroelectric Facility Project location is shown on the overview map. Each hydroelectric facility will divert partial flows from the river or creek, through an intake structure directly into a tunnel and/or penstock to the turbine(s) and generating equipment located in each separate powerhouse. The water will then be returned to each respective river/creek. Electricity generated by the hydroelectric facilities will be transmitted by a single 230 kV transmission line that will be constructed to connect the two hydroelectric facilities to the BC Hydro transmission system. The transmission line route does not pass through the Village of Pemberton. Click here for more information about run-of-river power. Project Drawings: Upper Lillooet River General Arrangement, Boulder Creek General Arrangement, Transmission Line General Arrangement drawings are located in the Documents tab Downloadable Documents section.
Bell Mine Clarifier This project for BV Electric was for the installation and wiring of the lighting on the 42m wide x 10m high Bell mine clarifier. This big structure was built to remove solids and sediment from the waste water. Essentially this structure is cleaning and recycling the water, this project is part of Glencore's reclamation of the Bell mine.
Volcano Creek Hydroelectric Project Located in British Columbia, approximately 1,000 kilometres (km) northwest of Vancouver, the proposed Volcano Creek Project is a run-of-river hydroelectric facility with a targeted output of 16 megawatts (MW). The project will capture the energy produced by the natural flow and elevation drop of the creek to produce and deliver clean, renewable power to BC Hydro through the Forrest Kerr 287-kV transmission system to the proposed BC Hydro Northwest Transmission Line (NTL) substation at Bob Quinn. All power produced will be sold to BC Hydro for distribution throughout the provincial power grid. As part of the continuation of the Forest Kerr project BV Electric will be instrumental in servicing the electrical need for this Hydroelectric project.
