High-Voltage Electricity

Electricity at UBC is provided primarily by BC Hydro via two transmission lines through Pacific Spirit Park. The BC Hydro lines connect to two UBC-owned sub-stations.

The North Campus sub-station distributes power to all the academic and student housing facilities. The South Campus sub-station provides electricity solely to TRIUMF, one of the world’s leading subatomic physics laboratories. BC Hydro provides power to all the market housing on campus.
