Lower Your Electricity Usage

I am an environmentalist at heart. I am not perfect, but I try to do things the right way. A way that helps preserve our environment for future generations.

Due to my philosophy, I am encouraged by the new time-of-day billing system for electricity use. Use hydro at peak times, and pay more. Use it off-peak, pay less. Sounds great in theory, but it sounds like they (the hydro companies) are using this new billing method to hide a rate increase.

One lady interviewed by The Toronto Star worked hard at both using less electricity, and using it more in off-peak times. Her savings? Not anywhere near what she thought they would be.
