These are the costs of delivering the electricity from generating stations across the Province to us then to your home or business. This includes the costs to build and maintain the transmission and distribution lines, towers and poles and operate provincial and local electricity systems. A portion of these charges are fixed and do not change from month to month. The rest are variable and increase or decrease depending on the amount of electricity that you use.
These are the costs of administering the wholesale electricity system and maintaining the reliability of the provincial grid.
