Suffering From High Electricity Bills

June 25, 2010

Christina Blizzard from The Toronto Sun wrote a column about Mr. Les Crisp who was enticed by the province to “Live Better Electrically”. This was the catchy phrase the government advertised with to get people to heat their homes with electricity. Now he is paying a whopping $7,000 a year. He blames Dalton McGuinty for these drastic increases in electricity costs. There is no way to escape this terrible expense because even if you buy your electricity from an alternative supplier, you will get hit by the “Provincial Benefit” line on your gas bill that will inflate your costs. He anticipates that his bill will increase even further due to Dalton McGuinty’s “Green Energy Act” which inflates the cost of electricity to subsidize his Green Energy pet projects. We in Ontario are all in for a big surprise when our electricity costs will soar in the very near future. What are you doing to reduce your dependance on electricity?
