As far as I am concerned FortisBC are theives who steal from the poor.
How else do you explain my 97-year-old mom getting a $400 dollar electric bill to heat her 740- square-foot house this month in Penticton?
Last year she was afraid to use her electric heat because of the cost, and used space heaters as needed but still got frostbite on one foot. This year we used her baseboards for heat and the bills keep going up each month. LED lights don’t matter, it’s the heat that costs money.
Our mayor and city council are useless too, otherwise they would stand up to FortisBC and fight for their citizens to get a rate that most of us can afford, especially the elderly. I’m angry that we have our hands tied, I say go solar, net-metering is the way to go and again our city council should fight on behalf of the citizenry to make going solar more affordable.
Get with the times, do some good for the honest, hardworking people who built this town.
