It’s time to make electricity savings real

The Ford Government says it will reduce electricity costs by 12%.  At the same time, it has criticized the “accounting tricks” used by the previous government to lower electricity rates.  If the Ford government is serious about lowering our rates without hiding costs or shifting them to our tax bills, it should take these two simple steps:

Step one is to take new Quebec Premier Francois Legault up on his offer to sell Ontario low-cost power to sell Ontario low-cost power.  Quebec has lots of surplus power and is eager to sign a long-term deal.  We have the infrastructure to get this power to Ontario.  Getting power at half the cost of power from aging nuclear plants is an excellent way to really reduce bills.

Step two is to maximize our energy efficiency efforts.  Ontario’s efficiency programs have been so successful that we are paying as little as 2 cents per kWh to save energy.  But we can save even more.  The result will be lower bills for everyone, cost savings for schools and hospitals, and lower costs for businesses.  We will all win by aggressively pursuing smart energy use.

Sign the petition calling on Premier Ford to lower our electricity costs — for real.

Making a deal with Quebec is the smart power option
