The Globe and Mail
Last week, we received the highest energy bill we’ve ever had. It has been a hot summer and we have, admittedly, been running our air conditioner non-stop. (I feel no eco-guilt for this indulgence, given that I am eight months pregnant this August and seem to be operating a good five degrees above the average adult core body temperature.) But that’s not the only reason our energy costs have jumped. Time-of-use billing has gone into effect in our north Toronto neighbourhood.
