Public feedback on QEC’s General Rate Application

Press Release

Qulliq Energy Corporation (QEC) is encouraging the public to provide feedback on the corporation’s General Rate Application (GRA). The corporation submitted the application to the Minister responsible for QEC to change electricity rates effective October 1, 2022.

The application seeks approval on a shift from the current community-based rate structure to a territory-wide electricity rate that is more equitable for customers. Under this structure, all customers of the same type would pay the same electricity rate regardless of where they are located in Nunavut.

The proposal uses a different approach than previous applications requesting a territory-wide rate. To minimize financial impacts on customers, QEC is recommending that government rates increase to lower rates for non-government customers.

Nunavut’s Utility Rates Review Council, an independent advisory body, will review public feedback and provide advice on the application to the Minister responsible for QEC. QEC encourages the public to take part by emailing their comments to [email protected] by 5 p.m. on July 2, 2022. Please visit www.qec.nu.ca for more information on the application.
