Fortis Rate Change Meeting

FortisBC is hosting a public information session to help customers better understand the possible impacts of the rate design changes it’s seeking from the BC Utilities Commission (BCUC).

FortisBC recently filed a Cost of Service Analysis and Rate Design application that determines how customers are billed for the electricity they use. In it, FortisBC recommended moving to a flat rate by phasing out the current two-tier residential rate over a period of five years. The application also reintroduces a time-of-use rate to provide an option to help customers lower their bills.

At the information sessions, customers can learn the facts about these recommended changes and get help calculating the potential impact to their own individual bills.

The information session will take place in Kelowna, February 13, 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Best Western Plus.
