The Ontario NDP has caved into the greens.
“In fact, the NDP’s plan creates a more certain future for renewable energy in Ontario then the Liberal plan, which places a moratorium on all renewable power projects starting in 2018 when expensive new nuclear plants are projected to come on line.”
Result for you? Ever higher power bills.

Now, I did an interesting comparision. I posted my May-June power bill to an energy news group to see if others in other countries would respond and compare.
Here is my breakdown.
Total kwh 1,007.92, adjusted for line loss, 1,094.
Peak time: 200.26 @ 10.7 = $21.43
Mid-Peak 199.66 @ 8.9 = $17.77
Off-Peak 693.67 @ 5.9 = $40.93
Total power cost = $80.18
Deb Retirement $7.06
Total billing $184.13
10% Government bribe (enticing people to re-elect the Liberals) $18.41 credit.
This is a couple of the replies, be seated as you read them.
"Wow those delivery charges are outrageous! We have a generation and transmission charge of about $12 and $5 respectively, our electric usage was 568 Kwh (down from 631 last year same time period) for a total of $23.87 for electric ($47.98 after all BS charges) with a total bill of $73.84 including gas. I sympathize, but can't help but think there are ways to cut usage more."
"From May 19th to June 17th I used 208 kwh, for my 1400 sq. ft. home. I didn't skimp and do without to reach that number; I could have worked a lot harder to minimize electricity use. My charge for the power, which includes many small components, delivery charge, taxes, dam removal charges (very small), Columbia River benefits (a rebate), etc. is $29.13."
