Man Hydro is after another rate increase, which will bring the total in 1 year to 8%. They are blaming the increase in expenses on an 8% wage increase that the employees received. I am on a pension that doesn't increase at all, let alone 8%. This utility is out of control and needs to be reigned in by the PUB.

We are told that we have some of the lowest hydro rates in North America, I think I recall reading a study that only Quebec and Seattle (city utility) are lower, in terms of cost per kilowatt hour. Don't hold me to that, memory might be incorrect, and that was a year or two ago.

What I would like to know, is how much of these supposed savings are lost by the fact that it costs $20.85 every month just to receive a bill?($14 for gas portion,$6.85 for hydro portion). BC hydro charges much less for this portion of the bill.

And even if hydro does get the increase, we'll still have the lowest rates for Hydroelectric power in all of Canada.
And the best service and lowest rate of electrical failure too.
I'd say we're getting a bargain!
