Nelson Hydro – Notice of Rate Change 

Nelson Hydro wishes to advise our customers of a planned increase to our electrical rates for 2019.

The planned rate change will be a general rate increase of 1.5% effective Monday April 1, 2019 for the urban residential and commercial customers through all rate classes and a 2.94% increase for the rural residential and commercial customers through all rate classes.

The 1.5% urban rate increase on Monday April 1 will result in an effective rate increase of approximately 1.036% for the calendar year.

The 2.94% rural rate increase on Monday April 1 will result in an effective rate increase of approximately 2.03% for the calendar year. 

This rate increase will assist in funding longer term capital requirements and allow for an increase in vegetation management in both the urban and rural areas.

Nelson City Council agreed upon the increases for the urban customers, and this motion passed the first three readings of the bylaw on January 7th, 2019. We will be subsequently submitting an application to the British Columbia Utility Commission (BCUC) seeking approvals in this application to pertain solely to Nelson Hydro’s rural customers. It will return to City Council for final consideration once the British Columbia Utility Commission (BCUC) hearing is complete.

For our customers in the rural areas, we will be posting a Public Notice advertisement on behalf of the British Columbia Utility Commission (BCUC) on how to participate in the application once a proceeding is established by the BCUC.

The Nelson Hydro Open House for all rate payers coming up on Thursday Feb 7th, 2019. Click here for details.
