The NDP is raising concern about rising power bills on January first.
The rate review panel is recommending a planned five per-cent hike to power bills on January first be reduced to 3.5 per-cent.
Opposition critic Cathy Sproule says many business groups are against rapidly rising power rates.
She says now is not the time for SaskPower to raise rates.
SaskPower minister Gord Wyant says demand for power continues to grow, with the province making eight thousand new connections in the past year.
He says the rates reflect the need to provide safe and reliable delivery of electricity.
