BC Hydro logo on the TRAMS’ 1964 GMC on Flickr. Presumably, this logo was rolled out some time on or around March 30, 1962 when the amalgamation described below took place.
From BC Hydro’s corporate history: “To enable the development of Peace and Columbia River projects, the provincial government stepped in and bought BC Electric in 1961. A year later the government amalgamated BC Electric with the Power Commission to create a new Crown corporation: the British Columbia Hydro and Power Authority, known more familiarly as BC Hydro. The ’60s and ’70s saw BC Hydro take on some of the most ambitious hydroelectric construction projects in the world.”
