Our Hydro Facilities

Sea to Sky Energy Systems operates multiple run-of-river hydro projects in BC. We own Brandywine Creek and operate Skookum Creek and Upper Mamquam facilities.

Brandywine Creek Hydro Facility

 

The Brandywine Creek hydroelectric plant is a 7.6 megawatt (MW), run-of-river project located approximately 100 km north of Vancouver near Whistler. This plant generates 35,000 megawatt-hours per year of clean, renewable electricity, or enough electricity to power approximately 3,500 homes.

The plant is located on Brandywine Creek. This project was awarded a 20-year power purchase agreement in BC Hydro’s 2001 Call for Green Energy Projects. The project was commissioned in May 2005.

Skookum Creek Hydro Facility

 

The Skookum Creek hydroelectric plant is a 25 megawatt (MW), run-of-river project located approximately 70 km north of Vancouver and 12 km east of Squamish, BC, in the Sea to Sky corridor. This plant generates 85,000 megawatt-hours per year of clean, renewable electricity, or enough electricity to power approximately 8,300 homes.

The plant is located on Skookum Creek, a tributary of the Mamquam River. The plant is connected to the BC Hydro grid at Squamish via a 21 km, 138kV transmission line. The project was commissioned in May 2014.
