The Brandywine Creek hydroelectric plant is a 7.6 megawatt (MW), run-of-river project located approximately 100 km north of Vancouver near Whistler.  This plant generates 35,000 megawatt-hours per year of clean, renewable electricity, or enough electricity to power approximately 3,500 homes.  The plant is located on Brandywine Creek. This project was awarded a 20-year power purchase agreement in BC Hydro's 2001 Call for Green Energy Projects. The project was commissioned in May 2005.
