Business electricity rates
All rate changes, if any, are approved by the British Columbia Utilities Commission (BCUC).
On April 2, 2019, the BC Utilities Commission (BCUC) approved FortisBC's request to keep the 2018 rates in effect for 2019. The last FortisBC rate change took place in 2017.
While this keeps rates the same for many customers, some commercial customers may experience rate changes beginning July 1, 2019 as we begin phasing out the declining block rate and return to a single rate — a change approved earlier this year in our rate design application.
