Concern - Labrador Hydro Hike
NL Hydro’s proposal to hike power rates across most of Labrador is not going over well with people living here. The company is asking the province’s energy regulator to allow for a 25 per cent increase for customers in Central and Western Labrador, and smaller increases on the coast. Municipalities say they are uniting to fight the proposal. Meanwhile, on the south coast there are worries about what a rate hike could mean for people already paying high prices for power.
