Why do our Hydro Rates keep climbing ?

Hydro rates going up again, the Ontario Energy Board says. OEB says milder winter is to blame for rate hikes....

Only in Ontario would customers be penalized for Reduced Electricity Consumption.

We do the things we are supposed to do: use smart meters, turn down the temperature, use the dryer dishwasher on off hours, turn off lights and yet we still get screwed."

As a result of lower usage, Regulated Price Plan (RPP) prices did not recover the full cost of serving RPP customers. One of the main reasons prices have increased this last May is to recover this shortfall." With the salaries shown below, it would appear the main function of the electricity system, supposedly supplying electricity to us, is just an incidental activity.

This is where your increased Hydro payment are going ...
