Ontario’s Hydro One is getting raked over the coals for spending $15 million to redesign that piece of paper that arrives in the mail each month telling you how much you owe.
And no, that price tag isn’t about replacing an entire I.T. system, just the bill.
NDP Energy critic Peter Tabuns was right to ask how this could possibly be justified when, “Families are struggling to keep up with the 300 percent increase they have seen to hydro rates under the Liberal government.”
Apparently, this happened because Hydro One customers had trouble understanding their bills.
But I still don’t get how such a billing re-do could possibly cost $15 million.
This would never happen in the private sector, while both the Government of Ontario and the LCBO have foisted wasteful logo redesigns on taxpayers.
But, they’re mere pikers compared to Hydro One.
