South Peace News
Electricity consumers will soon have greater clarity and transparency in their bills, and benefit from a more competitive retail market. Based on the advice of an MLA team and the passing of Bill 201, the provincial government will take action in three key areas. In addition, retail advertising material can no longer be inserted in the billing envelopes of customers who are on the default rate. This will establish a more level playing field for all retailers.
