Project

Northwest Stave River is a 17.5 MW run-of-river hydroelectric facility located on Crown land, approximately 50 km north of Mission, British Columbia. Northwest Stave’s average annual production is estimated to reach 63,300 MWh, enough to power more than 5,500 BC households.

All of the electricity it produces is covered by a 40-year fixed-price power purchase agreement with BC Hydro, which was obtained under that province’s 2008 Clean Power Call Request for Proposals and which provides for an annual adjustment to the selling price based on a portion of the Consumer Price Index.

Northwest Stave River is Innergex’s 25th hydroelectric facility.

The Northwest Stave River plant has been granted with ECOLOGO® certification, the only independent  recognized environmental standard, for its reduced impact on environment.
