Update on the transfer of Sun Peaks Utilities’ Ownership to Sun Peaks Municipality and Transfer of the Gas Utility to Resort Gas Ltd.

The Alternative Approval Process review period has concluded and the Sun Peaks Municipality (SPMRM) has passed the required bylaw(s) and sent them to the Provincial Ministry for approval. While the SPMRM awaits final approval of the Province, planning is proceeding to finalize the purchase of Sun Peaks Utilities Co. Ltd by SPMRM.

Prior to the purchase by SPMRM of ownership of the water and sewer utility, it is proposed to transfer the gas utility to a newly incorporated wholly owned subsidiary of SPR LLP, called Resort Gas Utility. In order for these transactions to occur, the British Columbia Utilities Commission (BCUC) requires that Sun Peaks Utilities’ gas customers be notified of the proposed changes in ownership of the gas utility and be granted an opportunity to comment.

A copy of the application and various submissions are posted under ‘Gas Tariff & Rates’ tab on our website at www.sunpeaksutilities.com.  A copy of the BCUC Decision and Regulatory Hearing Dates can be found in the September 2017 Newsletter under the ‘Newsletter’ Tab.
