Ottawa Hydro Rates Up Again (A Lot!) on May 1, 2016

Ottawa Hydro Rates Increase Hugely 1 May 2016Be warned that Hydro has become more expensive - again - on May 1.  And don't forget that mid-peak and on-peak time have switched again: it's now MOST expensive from 11am to 5pm.

Give a cheer that we in Ottawa and Ontario saved electrical energy this winter.  We didn't use as much and didn't spend as much on hydro as the companies projected, so we're going to be rewarded.

They've increased our hydro rates!!!  Yes, that's our present for conserving energy.

The Hydro Ottawa website says: "The total monthly bill for a typical residential customer consuming 750 kWh per month increased by approximately $3.13 per month".  Doesn't sound so bad when they spin it that way.  But they don't bother mentioning that this is only the increase on the November and January increases!
