NCLGA Executive Recommendation: No Recommendation | Endorsed by the NCLGA and UBCM Memberships
Whereas BC Hydro is utilizing a two-tier monthly pricing structure on their electrical utilities being consumed by their customers;
And whereas smaller Northern communities have limited affordable options for their heating needs, therefore relying heavily on electricity for heating;
And whereas this dependency results in Northern citizens reaching the second-tier pricing significantly sooner each month than other geographical locations creating inequitable heating costs for those who live in rural Northern communities;
Therefore be it resolved that the NCLGA and UBCM supports lobbying the provincial government to make the necessary changes to BC Hydro to restructure their two-tier pricing model for Northern regions of the Province of BC and create an equitable pricing structure for all BC citizens.
