Apparently your hydro rate didn't go up, the charge for transmitting it did.JamieJames said:A lot of places in NA provide electricity with natural gas fired plants which raises the price of electricity - alternative providers of electricity raise their rates to market rates.
On a side note....if somewhere else has to burn natural gas to make power, WTF should our rates go up? WE own the hydro company!!
(at least for now, when the Campbell camp gets their way and sell it to the Americans, we'll be paying what they do in california for it)
