Enbridge seeks nearly 40 per cent hike to natural gas rates

Smart meters for all on the electricity side – on the gas side prices go up steeply in April because of expense in, primarily, February and early March.
People will be mad at their gas utility, but those utilities don’t make money on the commodity.  Perhaps anger should be turned on electricity sector decisions, and particularly coupling the early closure of coal-fired generation with heavy January exporting of gas-fired generation.

My initial summary of February figures for Ontario’s Electricity sector began: “February was a disaster for Ontario’s electricity consumers – but not nearly as bad as it will be for Ontario’s natural gas consumers.”  I should have noted I was referring only to large industrial, class A, electricity consumers.
