Exorbitant Power Bills Don’t Seem Right

Friday, 27 April 2012 02:01 Letter to the Editor

I would like to thank Mr. Torrie for his comments in the April 14 Lethbridge Herald. I too have seen a huge increase in my power bill, due only to transmission and maintenance fees.
Last fall I shut off power to my property, so any increases in my bill are the result of only maintaining a power pole and electrical box. Since 2010 my power bill has almost doubled. I am now forced to have the electricity completely removed and to use a portable generator when the need arises. This does not seem right to me.
