You Said It: Smart meters only benefit Hydro

 You Said It: Smart meters only benefit Hydro


We recently received our hydro bill and were astounded to find that, according to hydro, our usage has actually gone up 24 per cent over the same period last year. Nothing has changed in this household: no more people, no more showers, no more laundry than last year, and we heat with natural gas so we are perplexed as to how this could be.

I have never had any faith in the “smart meters” that were installed years ago. I think they’re faulty and always to the benefit of hydro. When we went on holiday last winter, we turned off the water heater, turned down the thermostat and despite no showers, no cooking, no laundry and minimal lights, our bill was only $20 less. ONLY $20. We were gone for half the month so how does hydro explain that one?

The only thing I see that’s increased over last year has been our bill. We’re looking forward to seeing how Doug Ford is going to deal with this in order to give Ontario families some relief from being totally screwed for years by the Liberal government.
