The British Columbia Coordinated Planning Group (BCCPG) is a forum for enabling the coordination of transmission planning activities with the aim of ensuring a high degree of reliability of the electric system.
Within British Columbia, the BCCPG enables coordination and, where appropriate, integration of the transmission planning functions of transmission owner members.
Outside of British Columbia, the BCCPG represents the interests of its transmission owner members to the Western Interconnection through participation in the Western Electricity Coordinating Council (WECC) Transmission Expansion Planning Policy Committee (TEPPC).
