This is a tour for Powerex and their facility/office which will provide insight to their business and how they trade energy. Powerex was established in 1988 as the wholly-owned electricity marketing subsidiary of BC Hydro - Canada's third largest electric utility - responsible for marketing BC Hydro's surplus electricity in the west. Today, they are a key participant in energy markets across North America, buying and supplying physical wholesale power, natural gas, ancillary services, and more recently, environmental products with an ever-expanding list of trade partners.
Powerex’s portfolio of energy resources includes purchases of power and natural gas from a wide variety of energy suppliers across North America, as well as the highly reliable Canadian Entitlement energy derived from the Canada/US Columbia River Treaty.
The knowledge, expertise and creativity of Powerex staff allows them to meet the changing demands of the markets and needs of their customers. Powerex employees closely follow the markets, enabling them to quickly respond to market changes. Their in-depth knowledge of the various markets, transmission and gas transportation systems helps them find creative solutions for securing and moving energy to support their trade agreements.
