2020 FortisAlberta Franchise Fee Increase

Please be advised that the Town of Wainwright is proposing to increase the local access fee, which is charged to FortisAlberta Inc. (FortisAlberta) for use of municipal lands for its power lines effective April 1, 2020.

The fee is recovered by FortisAlberta from its customers as the local municipal access fee on electric billings of all customers that receive electric service in the Town.  This local access fee will be increased from $5.82 (9%) to $7.11 (11%) of the delivery charge of FortisAlberta, excluding energy related riders. This calculation is based on 640 kWh consumption in 30 days.

Questions or concerns should be directed to Ed Chow, CAO at 780-842-3381. 

Thank you.
