Request A Line Rebate
If you made a payment to build a power line extension in order to receive electric service, you may be eligible to receive a rebate for a portion of your installation cost when a new customer is permanently connected to that power line.
To be eligible for a rebate, your application must be made within 10 years of the installation of the original power line.
REGULATION - 2.12 REFUNDS OF CAPITAL
Line/Service Extensions Less Than 184m
Customers will be provided with 92 metres of line/service extension at no cost, as provided for under Regulation 2.6. Any line/service extensions in excess of 92 metres will be at the cost of the customer. If any additional customers are connected to a contributed line/service extension, they will not be required to contribute to the shared portion of line but will be responsible for the cost of any service extensions in excess of 92 metres. For each additional customer connected to a contributed portion of line within ten years from when the line was made available, the person who made the contribution will be entitled to 46 metres of equivalent line cost minus a 10% administration fee to a maximum of 90% of the total contribution.
Line/Service Extensions Longer Than 184m
Customers will be provided with 92 metres of line/service extension at no cost. Any line/service extensions in excess of 92 metres will be at the cost of the customer. If any additional customers are connected to a contributed line/service extension, they will be expected to contribute to the cost of any shared line plus contribute the cost of any dedicated line minus a credit for 92 metres of equivalent line cost. Customers who have paid a capital contribution will be entitled to a refund each time additional customers are connected to the line within ten years of the date of the customer's capital contribution. The refund will be the difference between the net capital contribution paid to date and what would have been required if the additional customers had attached at the time the contribution was paid. Any refunds will be reduced by 10% as an administration fee. The maximum refund a customer can receive is 90% of the original contribution. Notwithstanding the above, no refunds of capital contributions associated with any line/service extension will be made after such line/service extension is more than fifteen years old.
