Why We Pay High Hydro Bills in Ontario


I read an interesting email last week.  I think everyone should read this and pass it on.  Here it is:



job titles. Scroll- Scroll it's a long list!
Ontario Hydro- includes a list of their salaries and look at job titles. Scroll- Scroll it's a long list!

My question is: when are we finally voting "against getting screwed" (pardon my language)....why did we vote this "thing" in with a MAJORITY????Does anybody have an answer to that??????.....sorry, YOURS TRULY......who did not vote liberal!!!!!

Ont. buys the power for 81 cents and sells it to the US for 31 cents?   Aren't we good neighbours?

Hydro rates going up this summer, Ontario Energy Board says. OEB says milder winter is to blame for rate hikes, which will add about $3 to average monthly bill.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.

We've had a hot summer and consumption is back up again. Will they reduce rates?
Take a guess. What business, other than this monopoly, could get away with this BS!

"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 are increasing in 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.

Pretty hard to take!! (And some people actually felt sorry for Charelli when he got booed at the Red/Black's opener)

Salaries Related to Ontario 's Hydro Costs between the  Ontario Energy Board (OEB), Hydro One and the Ontario Power Generation (OPG) (all three Public Sector Agencies) there are 11,879 employees who make more than $100,000/Year! These top earners draw combined annual earnings
of over 1.6 billion dollars. There are 626 making more than $200,000/Year. According to the Globe
and Mail, a whopping 77.5% of Ontario Power Generation employees make over $100,000/Year. Over 70% of Hydro One employees and over 60% of Ontario Energy Board employees make over 100K.

Pass this along to those that you think might be as pissed off as you are!!!
