The Williams Lake Project is a 66 MW biomass-fired generating facility located in Williams Lake, in south-central BC. The Project commenced commercial operations in April 1993. Atlantic Power indirectly owns 100% of the Project.
Williams Lake sells energy to BC Hydro under a long-term PPA expiring in 2018. Biomass fuel is provided to the Project under short-term and long-term wood waste supply agreements with various suppliers. Biomass consumed at Williams Lake consists of wood waste from sawmill operations.
Atlantic Power operates and manages the Project.
