Located in British Columbia, approximately 1,000 km northwest of Vancouver, Forrest Kerr is a 195 MW run-of-river hydroelectric project.
The project will capture the immense energy produced by the natural flow and elevation drop of the Iskut River to produce and deliver clean, renewable power to the grid at Bob Quinn Lake via BC Hydro's
proposed 287-kV Northwest Transmission Line (NTL).
This project will contribute to the Province of British Columbia's goal to achieve energy self sufficiency by 2016, as well as help the Province meet its clean energy needs in an environmentally and socially responsible manner by offsetting the use of electricity generated from fossil fuels.
Locally the project has the ability to act as an energy source for regional development. On a national and global scale, the project will provide a clean, renewable energy source that will help meet Canada's commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
