During calendar 2016, Nova Scotia Power Incorporated over-recovered its cost of fuel and imported energy. Since the normal balancing mechanism was in abeyance for that year, Nova Scotia Power rebated the over recovery directly to all its customers, including BEC. BEC is passing the rebate on to its customers, based on the amount of energy each purchased during 2016. The rebates are credited directly to current accounts, will be mailed to those for whom we have forwarding addresses when the rebate is $10.00 or more.
