Ever wonder when you turn on a light in BC, where the power comes from? There's a good chance it came from Hudson's Hope!
There are 2 major hydro electricity projects near the community - WAC Bennett & Peace Canyon Dams, and BC Hydro runs tours of the facitlilites to show you how it all works. We went on the tour at WAC Bennett where they take you deep into the base of the earth-filled dam to see the massive turbines and power generating equipment. The shear size and scale of the equipment is amazing! The tour is a must if you're in the area and would be fun for the whole family.
