Brookfield Power has acquired two hydroelectric generating facilities in northeast British Columbia from East Twin Creek Hydro.

The two run-of-river facilities, which are located near the communities of McBride and Valemount, have a combined installed capacity of 7.4MW and produce approximately 29GW hours of energy annually. All the power generated by the facilities is sold under long-term purchase agreements with BC Hydro.

These two facilities complement Brookfield Power’s existing renewable power generation portfolio in British Columbia, which now includes five hydro stations on five river systems.
