Your electricity rate

​July 2018

On July 18, 2018, the BC Utilities Commission (BCUC) approved FortisBC’s request to keep the interim rates set on January 1 as permanent rates for 2018. This means customers will see no change to their electricity rates in 2018.

Understanding your bill

Every month you get a bill showing you how much electricity you’ve used. The amount you pay on your bill provides you with electricity 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and helps us recover costs of distributing electricity to you.
In addition, it helps us address the rising costs of electricity and supports the necessary investments into the electricity grid that serves you and approximately 167,500 customers in BC’s Southern Interior safely and reliably.  

Your bill is composed of these charges:

  • basic charge that pays for:
    • your meter
    • maintaining infrastructure
    • billing costs
  • energy used during your billing period
