HYDRO rates zip up in Ontario – Consumers face higher bills as of May 1, 2010 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – Hydro rates are about to go up in Ontario.   With coal generation not a prime choice and slated to end alternative energy sources are being invested in.   These and increasing energy costs have led to what some media sources are reporting increases to Ontario consumers for as much as 12%.

Consumers now pay 5.8 cents a kwh for the first 600 kwh they use each month in the summer, or the first 1,000 kwh in the winter. Starting May 1, that price rises to 6.5 cents a kwh.

Beyond those threshholds, consumers now pay 6.7 cents a kwh. Starting May 1, they’ll pay 7.5 cents.

The price increase doesn’t stop there.

Many consumers are now being switched to time-of-use rates, which charge more for power used during peak periods, and less for power used during off-peak periods such as weekends and after 9 p.m.

The new price schedule will boost the off-peak rate to 5.3 cents a kwh from 4.4 cents – a hike of 20 per cent – while the peak rate rises to 9.9 cents from 9.3 cents.

We in Cornwall are a bit insulated as our electricity comes from Quebec, but there have been increases in Quebec as well.

Pastor Tom, Green is the way to go. Perhaps if it were actual Greens making the decisions it may not be as expensive? After all, Greens generally are very fiscally CONSERVATIVE.

Greens stand for protecting Medicare, guaranteed minimum income and full legalization and taxation of Marijuana which also would dramatically reduce the cost of a pointless war on drugs that would have the same effect on criminal activity that taking over of the gambling and booze rackets did.

Greens are not a one dimensional political Party.

Pastor Tom, Has it ever occurred to you that the lack of green, green, green has contributed to the negative birth rate. It has long been contended that the chemicals and toxins released into our environment affect birth rates. According to About.com: “Studies have indicated that food and drinks stored in such reused plastic containers—including those ubiquitous clear Nalgene water bottles hanging from just about every hiker’s backpack—can contain trace amount of Bisphenol A (BPA), a synthetic chemical that interferes with the body’s natural hormonal messaging system.” Also according to the Environment California Research & Policy Center, which reviewed 130… Read more »

Sorry Jacqueline: it’s a moral, spiritual issue, not a chemical one. Just like modern psychology, everything is caused by chemical imbalances, when it is actually unconfessed and unforsaken sin in the life that is causing such bad behavior. Plus the overall philosophy of the environmentalist is that over population is the problem, and that humans should not be allowed to live on planet earth. So abortion, forced sterilization, etc. is the environmentalist way of saving mother earth from us nasty polluters. And also, if you think about it, it is not politically correct to have children. Why? Having them restricts… Read more »

Admin:
I suggest we vote in the Green Hornet as the official mascot of the green movement. According to CTV Ottawa, green solar power is going to start at 82 cents per kilowatt an hour[ see linkhttp://ottawa.ctv.ca/servlet/an/local/CTVNews/20100408/OTT_Green_Ont_100407/20100408?hub=OttawaHome].

Why the Green Hornet? Green for sure, and it’s sting, well – acute pain is coming to our wallets and pocket books!

Under the green umbrella Guy Lauzon will vote to raise our taxes, toss away the ballot and allow unelected petty officials to turn our lives into an upside down hell. Anyone who disagrees is an unpatriotic supporter of Bin Laden. As you can plainly see by the news that volcano in Iceland was set off because people were smoking cigarettes in the park and didn’t pay enough taxes. If people paid more taxes then the sun wouldn’t go through it’s warming phase cycle number twenty four. Depending on who you vote for volcanoes won’t explode and the sun will cool.… Read more »
