Penticton Western News letters to the editor.

Letter: Last chance to have your input heard

Last chance to have your input heard

This applies to town and rural residents.

If you regularly find your power bill to be in the second tier in spite of your best efforts then this is your chance to be heard. Your testimonials are needed by the end of December 2017. These will be presented to the B.C.Utilities Commission at hearings to be held in 2018.

You will need to state your name, address and contact information along with a brief statement of what you have done to lower your costs (plastic over windows, power smart appliances, blankets and sweaters) also alternate heating methods if any (pellet stoves, wood stoves or propane space heaters).

Please send your testimonials to Mr. Nick Marty at marty2tier@gmail.com. Mr. Marty is a leading expert in electrical conservation and will be preparing the intervention on behalf of all who have been affected. All your personal information will be kept in confidence only the location will be used in the submission. Keep it brief and to the point.
