Stittsville family hit by huge Hydro One bill

The Ottawa Sun has a story today about the Garby family who live on Lloyadex Crescent in Stittsville.  The Hydro One bill for their bungalow was $333. Meanwhile, residents who are on Hydro Ottawa’s distribution system pay a substantially lower price for electricity.

“The delivery charge alone for Garby’s last bill was $140. The delivery charge for a nearby home in a Hydro Ottawa neighbourhood was about $36. Nearly 50,000 city property taxpayers are getting service from Hydro One and not from their own municipally-owned utility because of where the boundaries are drawn. Hydro Ottawa wants to acquire those city-based Hydro One customers but the two sides can’t agree on a price,” writes Jon Willing in the Sun.
