Hydro Rates Go Up In Ontario

Durham, ON, Canada / channel12

Hydro rates went up across the province yesterday — increasing for the peak period to 18 cents per kilowatt hour.
The Ontario Energy Board said the hike was necessary due to lower-than-expected electricity usage over the winter.
The Progressive Conservative Party says in a release that the hike will cost the average ratepayer an additional 37 dollars a year.
The release claims that Ontario’s energy rates are rising at a faster rate than any other jurisdiction in North America.
P-C Energy Critic John Yakabuski says in the release that only in Ontario could this happen — that if you use too much power, rates go up and if you conserve energy, rates still go up.(Canadian Press)
