The Saskatchewan Rate Review Panel is inviting public comment as SaskPower seeks a rate increase.
SaskPower is proposing a system average rate increase of 4% effective September 1st, 2022 and 4% effective April 1st, 2023.
According to the crown corporation, the average residential customer, will see an increase of $5 per month on September 1st and $5 per month on April 1st next year. As well, the average farm customer will see increases of $11 per month on September 1st, 2022, and $12 per month on April 1st, 2023.
SaskPower says the increases are driven primarily by higher natural gas prices.
