BC Hydro floats a trial balloon that many don’t want to see fly

BC Hydro has developed what in effect will be a two tiered system of hydro payments for the provinces electricity users, a plan that has a number of residents already firing off the letters of intervention.

Hydro intends to charge a base rate for consumption up to 1600 kilowatt hours in the two month billing system, should a user go above that 1600 threshold then a second tier of pricing will kick in, increasing the hydro bill for those that flick the switch more frequently.

Holy…  1600kw is not a lot!  We use triple that in the cold months!

You can file an intervention with th BCUC, there’s no shortage of folks that have done so already…
