Nearly 90 per cent of customer accounts are residential, with the remainder either commercial or industrial. Each of these three groups consumes roughly one third of the total electricity supplied. (roughly one third each??)
Over 95 per cent of the electricity generated by BC Hydro comes from hydroelectric facilities (IPP included??), which are located throughout the Peace, Columbia and Coastal regions of B.C. Three thermal generating plants produce the remainder (Diesel too??).
