Manitoba Hydro makes case for 3.95 per cent rate increase to PUB
CBC News
Manitoba Hydro appeared before the Public Utilities Board recently to make a case for raising electricity rates by nearly four per cent. Hydro previously announced a plan to increase rates by 3.95 per cent in 2015 and 2016, but the PUB would have to approve those increases. Hydro argued at the time that the increases are needed to ensure a safe, reliable supply of electricity in Manitoba. The crown corporation was already granted a 3.5 per cent increase in 2013 and an interim increase of 2.75 per cent in 2014.
