Seasonal Electric Service (Regulation 3.3)

The contract period for all seasonal accounts is from May 1 to October 31, in any calendar year. Electric service to seasonal customers will remain connected during the winter period from November 1, to the following April 30 and the base charge will not be billed during these winter months, nor will bills be rendered. Energy used beyond October 31 will be billed on the first regular billing after May 1, or the final bill, whichever comes first. A disconnection charge, as set fort in the Schedule of Charges, will be applied when the seasonal electric service is physically disconnected at the request of the customer. The standard connection charge will apply if electric service is subsequently reconnected.

Seasonal domestic electric service will apply to any self-contained electric service (i.e. summer homes, cottages, hunting or fishing camps), occupied on an intermittent basis, and NS Power is satisfied that it is not the customer's permanent or primary residence.
