Wednesday, Oct 21, 2015

A question from the consumer advocate at a Utility and Review Board public hearing on fuel costs Monday revealed another benefit or possible subsidy to Port Hawkesbury Paper, as well as the added cost to Nova Scotians.

The question forced Nova Scotia Power to disclose that ratepayers are charged $7 million each year for a biomass plant that reduces the cost of electricity for Port Hawkesbury Paper.
