Duffield REA Introduces Fixed Price Contracts for Members
The Provincial Government restricted what consumers could be charged for electricity for the months of January, February and March of 2023 to 13.5 cents. Unfortunately the cost of acquiring electricity for our members was higher than the 13.5 cents. Under direction of the government, the additional cost is now to be recovered from members who remain with the Regulated Rate Option (RRO) . The recovery will be spread out over the next 21 months, starting with the April invoice and will have a significant increase on members' bills.
To mitigate this additional cost to members, the Board of Directors is offering to members a fixed price contract. To participate in the fixed price contract, starting April 1, 2023, the completed contract is to be returned to our administration office by the end of business day on April 30, 2023.
Contract term is 12 months, April 1, 2023 to March 31, 2024.
Price per KWH is 12.5 cents.
The non contract price (RRO) for April 2023, is 15.42 cents per KWH and subject to change each month.
Further information and contracts can be obtained by contacting Duffield REA administration at Blue Mountain Power Co-op at 310-POWR (7697)
