Manitoba Hydro has requested an interim hydro rate increase of 5% as of Jan. 1, 2022 to the Public Utilities Board (PUB). An increase of this size will have a huge impact on already massive hydro bills for northern customers living in hydro impacted areas. The Interchurch Council presented at the PUB on December 1 to bring this concern to the panel’s attention, proposing that Manitoba Hydro “devise a customer class or an alternative solution” for customers living in hydro impacted areas to protect them from these impossible bills.
You are also invited to send in your comments and concerns to the PUB. The Public Utilities Board welcomes all consumers whether you represent a business, an organization or just yourself.
