Government would hope you believe your power — electrical — is a regulated system.
According to the Calgary Herald, the price in Alberta has swung from three cents to 30 cents per kwh. That is, of course, based on the Enron model of supply and demand. By choking supply you can demand what you want.
Alberta electricity supply is now sold all over North America — deregulated. So if they have a heat wave in Texas and we have a -40°C month we have to bid for our electricity.
In my last letter, I complained about having to buy power, and my costs. Recently Imperial Oil decided to run its Strathcona plant off the grid. They are building their own generation supply. According to a news release they can save 75 per cent on electrical costs. That’s common, Devon has always had their own generator. Edmonton built Genesee power plant.
I have investigated alternate generation capacities. Sick of paying $3,000 electrical bills I have found a natural gas 50kw farm generator for $5,000 new. My costs will return to three cents or less.
In my research I have found many micro generator companies that supply little towns in Alberta. Maybe that’s the new direction — can’t trust the government so grow your own power. I think that’s pathetic personally — that the system we built has been sold away leaving us a captive slaves if you agree and comply.
To survive you have to abandon the system that was built to protect you. And of course you will still need to keep paying Hathaway a nine per cent premium per year because that’s the law. Written by government to ensure the super-rich one per cent stay that way.
