Electrical rates in School District No. 67 are the highest in the province and the District has lobbied the Ministry of Education, the City of Penticton and the District of Summerland for relief in this area. Consequently, in 2012, the City of Penticton has frozen their rates for one year while the District of Summerland has decreased rates. School District No. 67 has also done its part by taking on initiatives to reduce consumption levels where possible.
