B.C. Utilities Commission Review

Government has acted on one of its 10 Year Plan commitments for BC Hydro by conducting an independent core review of the British Columbia Utilities Commission to increase its effectiveness and efficiency. Government launched the Core Review of the BCUC in April 2014 with the goal of increasing the BCUC’s capacity, effectiveness and efficiency.

The task force assigned to implement this review included Michael Costello, Peter Ostergaard and R. Brian Wallace, who all have experience in electricity policy, utility operations and the regulatory framework. The Final Report of the task force was released on February 4, 2015, following consultations with 25 stakeholder groups. Government accepted all 35 of the task force’s recommendations. 

Government has worked with the BCUC since the release of the report to to strengthen the BCUC and help restore the confidence of ratepayers and utilities.
