City electricity rates going up

by - Story: 44585

If you get your electricity from the City of Kelowna, chances are you'll be paying more.

City Council will be asked to approve a 4.6% increase to the electrical utility rates.

The increase would take effect with the first billing cycle in March of this year.

The increase is being recommended after FortisBC was given approval for a similar 4.6% increase by the BC Utilities Commission back in December.

A report from Electrical Administration Manager, Cindy McNeely, says the FortisBC increase will impact the bulk power purchase rate for the city.

Typically, those increases are passed on to city electrical utility customers.

Council will also be asked to approve changes to cost for service charges in order to recover costs incurred.
