What does the Delivery Charge on Hydro bills pay for?

According to the 2011 census, there were 4,887,510 private households in Ontario. Let’s say each home pays a $50 per month delivery charge on their electric bill.  I’m using $50 as the base amount because people in condos probably don’t pay that much, while rural residents pay $75 and in many cases  upwards of $100 per month.  So […]

Environmentalism Is A Religion

Thanks to C. Berg for this article.  I have been saying for years that the true science deniers are the faithful members of the Church of Global Warming.
