Cornwall Electric is increasing rates by one per cent for its 24,800 customers in South Glengarry, Cornwall, South Stormont, and the Ontario portion of the Mohawk Territory of Akwesasne.

“The long-term contract in place with Hydro Quebec is a wholesale contract and it has and continues to allow Cornwall Electric rates to compare favorably to surrounding electrical utilities and ensures that we continue to provide rate stability and reliable electricity to our customers,” says Jackie Baird, Regional Manager of Cornwall Electric.

A residential customer using 1,000 kWh per month will see an average monthly increase of $1.30.
