There are currently two dams on the Peace River. The W.A.C Bennett dam (183 m (660 ft) high, one of the world’s highest earth fill dams, completed in 1968) and the Peace Canyon Dam (50 m (164 ft) high, concrete dam, completed in 1980).
These dams are not without controversy. They had huge environmental and local impacts, however when they were built Hydro Power was still considered economically viable. This is not true for the Site C dam. Leading economists agree that Site C dam, in it’s proposed location at this time is not an economically sound proposal.
