Wordless Wednesday: Changing Up Your Hydro Time-Of-Use

| May 1, 2013 | 4 Comments

time of use may 1 changes

Ontario’s Hydro rates change today:  we’re rewarded for going easy on the grid during peak hours by paying a much lower rate during off-peak weekday hours.  From May-Oct, try to do your laundry, cooking & cleaning between 7pm-7am whenever possible, and “power down” during the 11am-5pm timeslot.   Have you got your reminder stickers posted in the laundry room and kitchen?  It usually takes me a few weeks to get into the swing of the new schedule each spring/fall.

    At first it was hard to get used of a new routine but now it doesn’t bother me because we’re used to it.
