Waneta Dam has been wholly owned by BC Hydro since July 2018[5] after Fortis BC finalized an agreement with Teck to sell its 66% interest in the dam, but BC Hydro had first rights to purchase the remaining 66% from its first 1/3 ownership deal.[6]

Privately-owned hydroelectric stations

This list includes all grid-connected hydroelectric generating stations not owned by the Crown Corporation BC Hydro. This list includes stations owned and operated by Independent Power Producers as well as by private utilities such as Nelson Hydro and FortisBC. In some cases, such as Lois Lake and Powell Lake, the electricity generated may be used solely for private industry, even if it is grid-connected.
