What is a rate rider?
A rate rider is a temporary, additional rate on your bill, separate from the basic rates. Rate riders are intended to recover costs or refund money for something that is temporary, or caused by factors outside of NTPC’s control.
What is a GRA?
GRA stands for General Rate Application. It’s the process by which NTPC applies to the Public Utilities Board to change how much customer pay for power or make other changes to the way NTPC conducts business.
Why is the NWT stabilization rate rider territory-wide?
As part of the GNWT’s review on power rates, regulation and subsidies in 2011/12, it was decided to eliminate community based rates and create rate zones. As part of this process, NTPC was also directed to create a single, territory-wide stabilization fund. Having a larger, territory-wide stabilization fund means that riders are less frequent and smaller.
