As of April 1, 2023, a negative 1% rate rider applies to the cost of all electric vehicle (EV) fast charging sessions on our network.
A rate rider is applied to the total of all charges, before taxes. It can be a negative or positive amount. Amounts received from a positive rate rider are used to recover additional and unpredictable energy costs. These include low water inflows and higher-than-forecast market prices. The rate rider is set by the B.C. Utilities Commission.
As of January 25, 2024, you'll no longer see a separate rate rider line item in your emailed receipt. Instead, this amount is now included in the displayed charging session cost.
