Throughout recent regulatory proceedings, including prior General Rate Application (GRA) and
Annual Capital Expenditure (ACE) Plan proceedings, and in direct conversations with customers,
there has been a consistent message that Nova Scotia Power (NS Power, the Company) must
make every effort to ensure our operations are conducted as efficiently as possible and we
pursue all reasonable avenues to reduce upward pressure on future electricity rates.
The 2014 ACE Plan is an important part of NS Power’s business communications with the Nova
Scotia Utility and Review Board (Board, UARB), stakeholders and NS Power’s customers: it is
focused on affordability, while maintaining a safe and reliable power system.
