FortisBC information session coming up in Castlegar

FortisBC is planning an information session later this month to explain their proposed rate design changes.

It's to help customers better understand the possible impacts.

FortisBC recently filed a Cost of Service Analysis and Rate Design application recommending  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.

While changes to rate design are revenue neutral for FortisBC, they could have bill impacts for customers.

The local information session will be February 16th from 6-8:30 at the Castlegar Sandman Inn.
