This means the cost of running your fridge, doing the laundry, or washing dishes has gone up more than 200% in a dozen years. Why is the cost of hydro so high? How is it possible to use little or no electricity and yet have to pay through the nose for “delivery fees”? Is this all a government cash grab or is there some rationale to it?
