Commissioned: 2015

The project intercepts the City's effluent (treated sewer) discharge line to produce power that will be fed back into the BC Hydro grid under the utility's Net Metering program, prior to the effluent being discharged into the Peace River.

The micro-hydro station has been generating power since fall of 2015, enough to power about 70 homes.  The revenue generated helps to offset the cost of pumping water out of the valley to homes and businesses, the city's biggest electricity cost.
