@FortisBC I'm not talking about the crews, who did a great job. I'm talking about the internet team who did not indicate that there was an outage in the outage map online (nor anywhere else online). I had to call to find out. In the mean time I though my furnace was broken (=stress)

Anyone else have sticker shock from their @FortisBC bill this month?
My usage is down 15% compared to the same month last year and the bill is the highest we've ever had.

@bob_fedderly @FortisBC @bchydro @CAPE_ACME I also found an update on BC Hydro's regulatory accounts...they are down to $4.2B but that's only a small part of Hydro's overall $29B debt, which gets transferred into these accounts based on the depreciation of the corresponding ***ets (I think). https://t.co/NML6MuDWlo

@bob_fedderly @FortisBC @bchydro @CAPE_ACME Unless the govt pays down a significant chunk of the Site C debt, the final price tag could easily double - a far greater long-term risk to electricity rates than selling it at a loss for a few years.
Reported 2023-01-05 00:09:14
@bob_fedderly @FortisBC @bchydro @CAPE_ACME The problem is that the m***ive debt carries m***ive interest rate risks, which compound the still significant construction risks.
Just a 1% interest rate increase will add $140M in annual costs (2.7c/kWh), and $12B to the final price tag (from $46B to $58B over 84 years).
Reported 2023-01-04 11:38:49
@bob_fedderly @FortisBC @bchydro @CAPE_ACME The BC gov't has quietly been paying down billions on the deferral accounts to keep Hydro rates low. There's not much reporting on it so I don't know the exact number.

@FortisBC I’m ready! For something new. But do you want to fix it? Your bill insert on the newly designed bill has a typo. It says, “Introducing your new gas bill that was inspired by 1400 FortisBC customers like yourself.” “Yourself” should be “you”! Get it? So, “…like you”

Good thing it’s fixed as leaking gas would is a serious safety issue, plus methane is a bigger ghg problem than co2
Carbon pricing is the right way to go to reduce externalized costs and use market forces.

@Roisin06490559 @FortisBC After digging down through 3 screens to find the avg temp data - it is not easy to find - I see that the avg daily temp for this billing period was 7*C less than the same period a year ago. I suppose that may affect usage - all at a mere 50% increase in cost.
