The Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) markets power generated at 31 federal hydro-electric projects owned and operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Bureau of Reclamation. These projects, which are part of the Federal Columbia River Power System (FCRPS), have a generating capacity of over 22,000 megawatts with an average annual generation of 76 terawatt hours (TWh), roughly a quarter of the nation’s annual hydropower generation.

BPA operates and maintains more than 15,000 miles of high-voltage power lines that deliver electricity across the Pacific Northwest and into California and Canada. BPA provides about 45% of all electric power consumed in the Pacific Northwest.
