BC Hydro Field Energy Storage Facility Temporary Generator

BC Hydro will be installing a temporary diesel backup generator and fuel tank for up to 2 years on the site of the Energy Storage Facility (ESF) backup system for the Village of Field. The backup generator is required after a catastrophic fire destroyed the ESF in February of 2021. Temporary office (on trailer, no foundation required) will be needed on-site, as existing building is fully destroyed.
