Can you believe they have put up the delivery rates on our Hydro bill. I got my hydro bill in for December 28th through to January 29th and the total bill came to $129.78. It's broken down like this:
On Peak - $14.77
Mid Peak - $9.32
Off Peak - $30.20
Regulatory Charges: $4.65
Debt Retirement Charges: $4.48
HST (13% taxes) $16.59
Minus $14.42 (10% discount for Ontario Clean Energy Benefit)
Grand Total: $129.78
As you can see I get charged more for delivery than hydro I use?? It just doesn't make any bloody sense. As for me cutting back, I have no idea where? At least it's getting lighter on a night so we don't put the lights on as much. I haven't used the dishwasher since before Christmas. If I use the clothes dryer once a month I am doing well. I try and have supper made by 5pm before peak rates. Have as much as possible turned off. Just not sure what else to do?
This week's "Home of the Week," looks better from the outside than the inside if you ask me? Very pricey area and the $3.7 million price tag reflects that. The inside of the house, feels so cold to me?
This week's "Condo of the Week," is part of a converted church. I personally have never fancied living in a church; it just doesn't seem right to me? I was surprised though at how bright and airy the place seems. Make sure you look closely at the fridge in photo 5. That is why I don't like stainless steel appliances, the fingermarks!!! $720,000 seems like the going rate for that area, though I think you could get nicer properties for cheaper in the same area.
Saw this and thought it was amusing:
