Alberta Power Consumers Being Gouged

Complaints continue from Albertans about being gouged by electricity providers. This letter to the Edmonton Journal reads, “But under deregulation, the producer, distributor and transmitter are all separate entities. As a result, we now have one of the most expensive electrical systems in Canada.” The letter concludes, “This is outright gouging and consumers have to demand a better deal. Do we need to start an ‘occupy energy companies’ protest group to rectify this?”

All opposition parties in the current provincial campaign have pledged to address our high power prices, while the incumbent PCs continue with the status quo which favours the power industry over the consumer.
