Design of the Tretheway Creek run-of-river power plant
To meet the rising demand for clean energy in British Columbia, Innergex Renewable Energy Inc., an independent power producer, entered into a 40-year power purchase agreement with BC Hydro in 2008. In 2013, this producer began construction of the Tretheway Creek power plant, which is located 50 km north of Harrison Hot Springs. The environmental and financial project constraints, however, were numerous, as the facilities were to be built on very uneven ground and over 260 m in altitude. The project took two years of work before being commissioned.
