SaskEnergy Rate Review report published

It was Benchmark’s pleasure to work alongside the Saskatchewan Rate Review Panel on the creation of the SaskEnergy Rate Review report, which was released on Tuesday.

The Saskatchewan Rate Review Panel advises the Government of Saskatchewan on rate applications proposed by SaskEnergy, SaskPower and the SGI Auto Fund. The Panel reviews each application and provides an independent public report stating its opinion about the fairness and reasonableness of the rate change, while balancing the interests of the customer, the Crown corporation and the public.

The Saskatchewan Rate Review Panel has recommended that the commodity rate proposed by SaskEnergy be reduced from $2.65/GJ to $2.575/GJ. The Panel confirms the interim reduction from $3.95/GJ to $2.95/GJ that took effect November 1st, 2018.
