Fighting Excessive Ontario Hydro Costs Petition



  1. small companys are shutting down i lost my job in a small town resturant cause of hydro low budget familys are going hungry, fawking assholes want to make money wile we suffer maybe we should do what eygpt did angaist ont hydro some people in apartments are getting bills up to 400:00 a month

    1. hydro one cut me off in an ice storm with a two month old baby in the house no disconnect bill just off.

  2. I live in a two-bedroom apartment with my four-month-old daughter (recovering from whooping cough) and I just received my first winter hydro bill for December-January. I was completely stunned at the amount billed of $551.00!!! On one hand, hydro advises they are refunding security deposits but do everything possible to take that and bill sum. This is absolute extortion and fraud in the highest degree. Premier McGuinty MUST go!!!!

  3. I have been paying hydro for 25 years now and I have never ever ever had a bill higher than $80 for one month. We moved to the country and apparently the average monthly bill here is $350 per month. Wait a minute the delivery charge is $100. We also have a garage that has a seperate meter. Our electricity usage is under $8, but our delivery is $45. What gives? We used to eat right, but now we are doing tiny little groceries and making cheap suppers, mostly stews and spaghetti. We have 5 children and we have to turn all the power off at night using a power bar. Funny thing, all of our lights and power is off after 6 pm but yet most of our bill off peak when we are in bed. We are on the brinks of losing our hydro to our house. Something has got to give, or our children will keep on going without fresh fruits and vegetables. We have two good salaries but all of our moneys is going towards taxes and utility bills. It feels like we are working poor.

  4. I hope everyone on here is voting for Harper! enough of Iggy talk and McGuinty, driving up electrical prices and giving us HST on our bills.

  5. I have been saying that hydro is ripping us off for a long time now 50 percent of our bill is extera billing, for exzampel,lv or loss factor, there is no such a thing as a loss facter charge, there saying that there is a loss of power as it gows down the ling, well thats the way it works it has to,its electeric it has to be grounded, this exteras on the bill are not real and is only that a Ripp off...

  6. I have been fighting with Hydro since April 2011. They initially said we owed them $11,000.00 in catch up. After many different stories like they read our meter November 11, 2010 which is not possible because we are water access only and the Hydro crew were not allowed to come over and do a disconnect on October 29, 2011. It was one lye after another. Now they are saying that they have reviewed our bill and we owe $12,000.00 and monthly payment plan amount is $714.00. We live on a small lake and are water access only but I think we must be paying for all 80 cottages hydro. We haven't used our electric furnace this year. We heat with wood. I wash with cold water on the off peak times. Dry my clothes out on a line. There is only my husband, dog & myself living here. It is a 1200 square foot home. I think there is something seriously wrong with Hydro.

  7. The cost of living index is distorted with the extra costs of hydro being in the delivery charge. You choose where you live thusly you pay the difference in delivery charge. IT IS NOT INCLUDED in the cost of living indexing ... but it does go up. The government reported, two or three percent cost of living index, is utilized as a lie to induce flattened salary increases, so your next contract only goes up 2 - 3 percent because the cost of living index is 2 - 3 percent. But the truth is the bills , regardless of how they are calculated , are going up much higher than that . We are idiots ! So sayeth the politician !

  9. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit
    crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

  41. My total bill is $196.00 for 1 month
    We used $63.00 worth of electricity and they charged $46.00 to deliver the electricity plus a $56.44 charge as a Global Adjustment
    That's just wrong then the HST on all of that on top of that.

  42. My wife and I are on fixed income and can no longer afford to keep our home with the rising cost for hydro. we have had to put our home up for sale and may have to move to another country were the cost of living is much cheaper. Who would ever have dreamed that our elected gov would have allowed this kind of thing to happen. we need to rise up and wake up and take our country back from all the greedy corporations corrupt governments who allow this to happen .

  43. Hydro we used : $305.29
    Delivery, regulatory charges, debt retirement charge and HST:$354.03!!!
    WE PAY $354.03 in order to use $305.29 worth of electricity!
    And our equally crooked tax raping government allows it! Welcome to Canada! Now please bend over!

  44. Hydro over charged me so much during the winter I'm still paying down a $2000 bill, and I was burning wood all winter on top of it. It's gotten so rough I had to go on equal billing so my costs are now $280 a month and there's no way I'm even using thst much a month during the summer and I'm afraid to turn on a light I leave them off all day use two max at night and follow hydro guidelines for bathing, washing and drying my clothes.

    It makes me so sickk I was looking into solar panels just so I can have a lesser cost

    But you buy the solar panels then hydro pays you to have them put up not a lot though and they sell the hydro back to us so it's clear to me the hydro ompanies as crooked as it gets.
