Hydro One / outrageous billing practices

1 Ontario, Canada Review updated:

Hydro One billing practices are outrageous. People have horror stories of bills in the thousands since the smart meter was implemented. The delivery Charge is full of hidden charges which should be itemized for one thing. The other is that this is often at least double of the actual usage. We from Hydro One Enough is Enough are demanding change. 1) Remove the smart meters they are not CSA approved, they are not calibrated, there is major health issues from the radiation emitted from it and lastly we did not sign any contract with Hydro One to have them install these meters. At least I didn't. 2) Delivery Charges itemized as it sits now with demanding that the Delivery Charges are lowered and made universal for all of Ontario. 3) The "Retirement Debt" to be removed from our bills effective immediately. 4) HST to removed immediately from all hydro bills. HST was not to be added to things of necessity... 5) overhaul of the complete Hydro One removing Kathleen Wynne and Ministry of Energy Bob Chairelli

There are many horror stories that can be backed up of the ludicrousness billing practices. How about the woman in Avonlee Ontario Jo Ann McPhee, . lost her car, had no heat, no money to pay for the propane to heat her house, frozen water, toilet etc. No food, had not had a shower or bath since December... there is no excuse we do not live in a 3rd world country...

    Hydro One - Driving of company vehicles

    My complaint is of Hydro One employees driving company vehicles home for lunch and other personal errands. Our hydro bills are going up monthly and I watch this going on. Unexceptable. If you are aware of this, please call hydro and complain. This has to stop.

    I am also fed up with hydro one, the less hydro i use the more my bill is . I don't do laundry except on weekends or holidays, have no lights on @ night just battery operated lights, don't cook till after 7:00 p.m, use the b.b.q more. All my appliances r energy efficient so what is the problem? Bring back the meter people they r smarter than these meters which have been installed and you r right we did not ask for them. Wynne & bob chairell should never have been voted in. It's just a tax grabber to make the companies richer on our tax dollars. I feel like I'm living in a communist country not CANADA

    We all have done what we can to conserve. Its the Wynne and her brain lame ideas to make more money for her to spend recklessly. Ontario is bankrupt even though they wont admit it. Resign Wynne You have no management skills nor how to spend our hard earned dollars efficiently. NO to the sale of Hydro One. It belongs to the people of Ontario
