PORT HAWKESBURY, NS, Jan. 13, 2020 (Local News) -The provincial regulator will hold a hearing next month into a proposed new power rate for Port Hawkesbury Paper, the largest employer in the Strait of Canso area.
The Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board has set Feb. 11 as the opening date for the hearing, with Feb. 12-14 reserved and an evening session on Feb. 10, if necessary. The hearing is to be held at the board offices at Summit Place on Lower Water Street in Halifax.
The hearing is open to the public. Written comments can also be made to the board.
Among those who have been granted intervener status in the matter are the province’s consumer advocate, represented by William J. Mahody and Emily Mason, with its application noting the proposal will have an impact on residential ratepayers and the consumer advocate intends to represent their interests; and the small business advocate, which represents three classes of small businesses — business, general and small industrial.
