TAKE NOTICE that
Maritime Electric Company, Limited ("Maritime Electric"
or the "Company") has filed an application with the
Island Regulatory and Appeals Commission ("IRAC" or the
"Commission") seeking, among other things, approval of
rates, tolls and charges for electric service for the
period from March 1, 2019 to February 28, 2022 (the "Application").
Maritime Electric is seeking an annual
increase in electric rates in each of the next three
years. The overall annual impact for individual
customers in a given rate class will differ to the
extent that their consumption differs from the typical
customer in that class.
addition to rates for electric service, Maritime
Electric is seeking approval of a target Return on
Average Common Equity of 9.35%, together with the
implementation of an Earnings Sharing Mechanism.
Maritime Electric has also proposed changes to its rate
classes, including the elimination of differential
service charges for urban and rural customers in the
Residential rate class, and the phasing out of the
Residential second block rate.
Application also incorporates certain findings and
recommendations made in the Point Lepreau Cost
Allocation Classification Study, Charlottetown Thermal
Generating Station Decommissioning Study, 2017
Depreciation Study, 2017 Cost Allocation Study, and the
