Draydan Power

T&D Standards Engineer
FortisBC Energy Inc.

I am currently the Transmission and Distribution Standards engineer with FortisBC Electric. I’ve worked with FortisBC since 2012 (starting as a co-op) and rotated through every engineering department at the company including Generation, Transmission, Substations, Distribution, Protection and Control, Planning, and Meter Communications (smart meter deployment). During my time I have assisted the gas side of the company with various electrical requirements such as grounding, induction, and cathodic protection. I am part of the Innovation Council at FortisBC that brings in new technology such as Virtual and Augmented Reality. I hope to make this technology widely available to different departments with various applications.
