Peace River Hydro Partners gives $25,000 to North Peace Community Foundation

PRHP reaches $375,000 via 150 donations since 2016

Fort St. John — July 7, 2022 — Peace River Hydro Partners (PRHP) presented a cheque for $25,000 to the North Peace Community Foundation (NPCF). NPCF will create a legacy endowment fund with the donation called “Building a Better Tomorrow”, and distributions will be split annually between Indigenous and non-Indigenous charities.

Fort St John Mayor Lori Ackerman and NPCF Executive Director Susan Adams joined PRHP on location at the Site C project to graciously accept the cheque and address PRHP workers. Since 2016, PRHP has made over 150 donations totaling $375,000.

PRHP’s Communications & Indigenous Relations Manager Jamie Bodnarchuk spoke about the importance of giving back, investing in your community, and how PRHP’s recycling program raises the funds used for community investment. “The recycling program is only possible because of the amazing and dedicated efforts of all our employees. Without them, we would not be able to make these much-needed donations. Since 2016, PRHP has recycled over 1200 truckloads of pop cans and bottles, and 7.2 million pounds of scrap metal, cardboard, and other construction waste materials that would have otherwise ended up in landfills. I am so proud of our teams. PRHP strives to not only work in the Peace region, but to be a part of the Peace Region community. We want to leave a positive legacy, and the “Building a Better Tomorrow” endowment is a step towards that goal.”

Peace River Hydro Partners, a joint venture between ACCIONA Infrastructure Canada and Samsung Renewable Energy Inc., holds the Main Civil Works Contract on BC Hydro’s Site C Clean Energy Project.
