Rate Increase for Saint John Energy Customers, effective April 1, 2017 

Saint John, NB – Saint John Energy is advising customers in all classes of an upcoming increase in rates effective April 1, 2017.

The increase stems from the Energy and Utilities Board’s (EUB) decision allowing NB Power to increase its rates by an average of 1.77% in all classes, including wholesale rates.  The breakdown of Saint John Energy’s rate increase are as follows:

  • Residential - 2.07%
  • General Service  1.55%
  • All other rate classes 1.77%

The EUB has approved a methodology for NB Power that addresses the cost to serve specific rate classes in a fair and equitable manner.  Saint John Energy has applied the same rationale in their rate setting and as a result has adopted differential rate increases effective April 1, 2017.

Saint John Energy reported a net profit of nearly $100,000 in 2013, which will be reinvested back into the company's ongoing operations.
The company cited changes to its pension plan and actively managing discretionary spending as two
of the primary reasons for the profit last year. In 2013, the utility converted to a Shared Risk Pension (SRP) Plan. It was the quickest conversion to an SRP of any plan to date in New Brunswick. It allowed Saint John Energy to save approximately $180,000 per month in contributions (or $2.2 million per year), and will also help minimize future plan volatility.
