SaskPower is changing demand charge calculation for seasonal customers

SaskPower is making billing easier for seasonal power users, such as ice rinks, campgrounds, ski hills, and some farms.

Beginning May 1st this year, the time-period used to calculate the minimum demand charge will be reduced from 11 months to 6 months.

Demand charges are issued to customers who use large amounts of power over a short period of time.

It will reset every May and November, so a customer’s peak months of power use are not part of the calculations for the minimum monthly billing charges applied during their off-seasons.

SaskPower says this change will benefit approximately 14-hundred customer accounts, saving them an average of $1-thousand 140 per year.
