Ontario Hydro: DON'T DO IT, unless you start offering alternatives
which will make it easier for individuals to get off the grid. Home
owners need good realistic incentives to go solar, in the form of
rebates and technical assistance.
You could also try freezing or reducing
those over-inflated wages you pay your upper level staff. Probably,
make enough money from that you wouldn't have to raise any prices for
a year or so.
I am in the process of planning to retire
and I CAN NOT afford to pay more for Hydro.
This is a far more civil letter than the
feelings that want to be expressed at the thought of one more
increase in what home owners have to pay out in order to live in
