- building new generating facilities,
- refurbishing current facilities (where that makes economic sense), and
- investing in conservation and energy management tools so that we require less new electricity generating capacity. “
- 1.You'll be able to take new actions to manage your energy bill. With a smart meter and time-of-use rates, you'll be able to take advantage of two cost-cutting strategies. These include:
Reducing your electricity use across the higher cost (on-peak and mid-peak) periods; and
Shifting your electricity use to lower cost (off-peak) periods.
- You'll get rapid feedback about your electricity consumption. Your information about your electricity use will be available to you the next day via the Internet and/or by telephone. Plus your electricity bills will provide a summary of your consumption during each TOU rate period over the previous billing period.
- Your electricity bills will reflect the readings taken and by your smart meter over the previous period. That means your bills will always be as up-to-date as possible."
So there's my rant. It'll get warmer, no one can afford to pay for electricity, a bunch of deaths. Pretty cool. Kind of makes me want to move. Next they'll say that Natural Gas is a good alternative. My alternative would be to have the province hire an actual accountant and not have a smug useless lawyer bastard leading the party. There's a thought.
And remember, Stay Cool.
