The following excerpt is fairly typical of the emails we have received on the issue of recent increases in Hydro bills:
" I just opened my hydro bill. I almost fell off of my chair. It went up by over $300. And it's just my daughter and I here. And we do our laundry on weekends, we stay away from peak periods and even run our dishwasher in the middle of the night. I replaced my lights with LEDs. What the hell is going on???? And why do we need this 8% rebate? As if that's going to make up for it. I can see people losing their homes because of this. It's like paying a small mortgage. Can you please cover this? It's outrageous!!!!!"
In that spirit, please share your stories. Did your bill go up? By how much? What do you think of this? Are costs spiraling out of control? Your thoughts?
