Your about to get hammered again on May 1st by almost a 3% increase in electricity rates as announced by the Ontario Energy Board.
This gaggle of gerbils at Queen’s Park has undermined our Energy sector so badly with their interference, legislated passage of the GEA and extension of the FIT, Feed In Tariff program for sleazy Wind and Solar developers that now Ontario consumers may have to start cutting back on food purchases in order to make sure the FIT Pigs at the trough get their pound of flesh ($$$) from our pockets!
Force an election you Opposition idiots and get on with cleaning this rotten Government out of the Pink Building at Queen’s Park Circle!!!!
Here’s the way the OEB is dressing it up so you don’t think it’s that bad!……………Honesty is long gone in this Province!………………………
All day weekends and holidays

TORONTO – Ontario hydro customers should prepare for a jolt.
The Ontario Energy Board (OEB) announced Friday that it was increasing electricity rates as of May 1, just in time for the air conditioning season.
“The price change for consumers is an increase of approximately $3.63 on the ‘electricity’ line, or about 2.9% on the total monthly bill, for a household with a typical consumption pattern that uses 800 kWh per month,” an OEB statement says.
Ontarians on time-of-use electricity pricing will switch over to the summer schedule on May 1.
The peak pricing period – weekdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. – will see a 0.6 cent increase to 12.4 cents kWh.
