Electricity – Rates
ENMAX Energy Corporation (“EEC”) requested approval of 2023 administration charges on an interim refundable basis, to be implemented effective January 1, 2023, as part of its 2022-2024 non-energy regulated rate option (“RRO”) Non-Energy tariff application.
The AUC approved the 2023 interim administration charges proposed by EEC on an interim refundable basis in part.
Regulated Rate Option Regulation, AR 62/2005.
Electric Utilities Act, SA 2003, c E-5.
The AUC found that continuing the existing administration charges is likely to give rise to a revenue deficiency. The AUC was, however, not satisfied by the quantum of the proposed administration charges requested by EEC. EEC applied to recover 60 percent of the difference between the 2022 interim administration charges and its applied-for 2023 administration charges. The AUC was not persuaded that the administration charges requested sufficiently minimize the risk of over-collection.
The AUC allowed EEC to implement interim administration charges on an interim refundable basis of $0.2392 per day for residential customers and $0.2178 per day for commercial customers, effective January 1, 2023. These figures represent 30 percent of the difference between the 2022 interim administration charges and the forecasted 2023 administration charges.
