Site C Powerhouse | Turbine Runners
When we fill the Site C reservoir, water will rush through the penstocks and turn six turbines inside the powerhouse to make electricity. The turbine runners weigh 165 tonnes each.

How will the Site C reservoir be filled?
One of the last steps in building Site C is to fill the reservoir, which allows us to put the generating station, spillways, turbines and generators into operation, creating enough energy to power the equivalent of about 450,000 homes per year in B.C.
