As long as Calgarians are convinced that they should be paying for electricity, all is going as planned.

8.4 cents per kWh? Oh the horror...
Seems whenever Alberta gets a taste of the real world in terms of the price of services, goods, and taxes, the crying ensues.

Is it comparable to the rate spike that Ontarians suffered when the McGunity/Wynne Liberals enacted their green energy scam?

Sort of. Many people's bills doubled over the previous month, but part of the cost is because it was much colder. But the price of electricity is also increasing, and when demand increases because it's cold, the price jumps as well. So there is a double whammy.

Used to be capped at 6.8, now it's 8.2. So 20%

Dr. and Prof. Thanks makes it a little bit better for me to understand why the complaints are happening.

My bill was about $15-20 higher than the previous month. Mutable issues on why but I expected the jump in the bill.

Better hope not. It would apply to almost all your posts.
