Electricity rates – latest news

August 1, 2016

The Public Utilities Board (PUB) has approved an across-the-board 3.36% rate increase for all customer classes effective August 1, 2016.

For a residential customer without electric space heat, using an average of 1,000 kilowatt-hours per month, the rate increase will amount to a bill increase of approximately $2.83 per month. For a residential customer with electric space heat, using an average of 2,000 kilowatt-hours per month, the rate increase will amount to a bill increase of approximately $5.41 per month. With this rate increase, Manitoba electricity consumers will continue to benefit from one of the lowest electricity rate structures in North America.

The PUB's Order approving the rate change may be accessed either through the PUB's website or by contacting the PUB at 400–330 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3C 0C4, 204-945-2638.
