It’s now more expensive to be on the grid and and drink beer in Ontario.

gridThe province’s second hydro increase of the year is now in effect.  The price during peak hours is up 8.7%.  The average household bill will rise about 3.5% adding about $31.00 to the yearly cost.  Another increase is scheduled for January.
