Statement: Fiscal 2020-2021 Revenue Requirements Application decision

The BC Utilities Commission has released its decision on BC Hydro’s fiscal 2020 to fiscal 2021 Revenue Requirement Application, which was filed in 2019. The Commission approved BC Hydro’s requested rate increase of 1.76 per cent for the fiscal year starting April 1, 2019 as well as the request to reduce the Deferral Account Rate Rider to 0 per cent.

BC Hydro had requested a rate decrease of 1.01% for fiscal 2021. The Commission has ordered some adjustments that will result in a revised rate decrease for this year. BC Hydro is calculating the exact impact of the Commission’s adjustments and will file that information with the Commission later this year.

We’re carefully working our way through the decision and will have more to say at a later date. Additional information on the decision can be found on the BC Utilities Commission’s website.
