No increase for Fortis BC customers.
Company spokesperson Diana Sorace says Fortis has gone to the BC Utilities Commission and received approval to keep its rates right where they are.
"There's several factors that go into how we set our rates. Fortis BC reviews the cost of natural gas every three months with the BCUC. Market conditions have allowed us to maintain our current natural gas commodity rate. There's a number of factors affecting the market price, which includes weather, supply and demand, as well as economic conditions."
Sorace says Fortis will go back to the drawing board to review its Natural Gas rates again in July.
She says rates cover the cost of the market price for Natural Gas Fortis purchases.
