HALIFAX, NS, March 27, 2020 (CBC) -Nova Scotia Power's largest customer will get another four-year discount on electricity rates.

In a decision released Thursday, the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board approved an extension of special rates for Port Hawkesbury Paper, which are 25 per cent below what the mill would pay if it was charged on the same cost-recovery basis as all other customers.

The deal means the company will save $20 million per year on its electricity bill.
