    Next time I go to Toronto, maybe we can organize another jaunt to something fun. I can't remember the name of that charming little town near Niagra Falls. Is it Niagra-on-the-Lake? Is that where the wine festival will be held?


    That would be fantastic Stella Mae. The Niagara Wine festival is held every Sept in St Catharines. The charming little town you are talking about is Niagara on the Lake...wonderful small shops, carriage rides, wineries and great restaurants.

    Good Morning Everyone! wave.gif

    Did anyone else get a huge credit from Hydro One? I just got a notice in the mail telling me I have a credit of $1440 icon_eek.gif

    I'm afraid that they will all of the sudden say "whoops, we made a mistake" and want it all back. icon_lol.gif

    I have no idea what it's for? Anyone else?

    Leslie I am so happy you posted about the Hydro Bill. Just received mine at $887.00. Now I did run the A/c & the pool but all on the decreased time rate.

    What has happened? Do you have any idea?

    I will phone on Monday & ask.

    If you had not mentioned this I would have assumed it was only me?

    Kitty, was that a credit or what you owe?
    I looked at mine carefully and found it was a CREDIT for over $1400.
    Weird!

    OK, got all excited & pulled the bill. Maybe I can't read? Wish that was so!!!!

    No it is a "bill/Total Amount You Owe. There is a credit for $50.81 for Ontario Clean Energy Benefit.

    Here I am thinking this morning? Leslie has 3 people in family & probably runs all the same stuff I do? Then again Leslie does catering so she uses the oven/stove top a lot more then me.

    No I am going to want to know why by friend has at $1400 credit & I am getting such a massive bill.

    Maybe I should look for a Grow Op in my home? Be right back the police are at the door, lol.

    LOL Kitty!

    Yes, my Hydro bill is for our family, but also for my Mom's home next door, she is alone but on the same hook up as us. Then there's the catering.

    Our Hydro Bill is generally about $440 a month, that includes 3 furnaces, 3 chest freezers, 2 ovens, 2 hot water heaters, 2 dishwashers, 4 fridges, 2 microwaves, 1 pool pump, 2 washers, 2 dryers and 4 people in total using general electricity.

    We are all as vigilant as we can be in using the minumum time of use periods, but of course we have to use some of the maximum for cooking etc.

    I pay extra on purpose every month because last year in September I got hit with an $800 bill that they called "overages" meaning my equal billing was set up at too low of a price and I owed more in order to keep the bill current, and they wanted it all at once.
    icon_rolleyes.gif

    This year I changed my equal billing so that I purposely paid about $40 extra a month in case I ran into the same thing.
    That in no way would reflect the whopping credit I have.
    Not that I'm complaining, but I certainly don't trust them and fully expect them to demand that credit back, probably right after Christmas when I'm short cash icon_lol.gif

    I wonder if your equal billing was set up too low like mine was last year?

    How wonderful Leslie. I can't remember if mine was hydro one or Ontario hydro. I must look to see if I have an old bill here.I always had them take out the payment monthly,easier that way for me the equal billing.
    StellaMae if you come our way we'll try to have a big get together.Haven,t been to Niagara for years and years.
    Hi to everyone else.

    Thank you again Leslie for the response.

    I will be phoning on Monday & at that time I will ask about "equal billing". Maybe the time has come due to the high cost to consider this choice?

    Now that you have explained your use of hydro & the fact you use the off peak periods as much as possible. I think they should give you that credit for being such a great supporter, lol.

    Going to have to fix that for you Nora, your so close now. Any time you want to come to Niagara just let me know and Stella if you want to plan another trip this way would love to see you! You know that I have not been on the Maid of the Mist since then.
    Yesterday I had some fun going to pick out the new tile for our kitchen/front hall and we picked up our new dishwasher! Finally have made it to the 20th century as there has never been a dishwasher here, well other then the 6ft man of the house icon_wink.gif

    Kitty,the equal billing makes it so much easier as you know exactly what comes out each month.

    Sandy, it must b 40 years since I've been to the falls. You know Ed never did see it. At one time I used to go to a friend every couple of week-ends as her hubby was on nights and she hated to be alone.

    Oh Tig, your 1st dishwasher how "very" exciting!!!

    Niagara-on-the-Lake sounds wonderful. This is the first place you I & met Tig.

    The Kids(young adults) attended the Wine Festival this weekend. They are not back yet. Hoping for a gift?

    Not to be excluded this time would be nice. Never understood it?

    Yes it was Kitty, it was the first time any of us had meet, we had such a good time that day.
    We didn't go to the Wine festival this year. Had wanted to go Friday night to see the Caverners , a Beatles tribute group, but it was raining.
    Next weekend, here in Welland, we are having the Niagara Food Festival. One of my favourite events of the year. Michael and Anna Olson are the chairs and put on great food demonstrations. Local restaurants and the Culinary school sell small samplings for a reasonable price and there are also local wineries, artisans and local foods for sale. Paul is away next weekend so if there is anyone coming this way I would love the company
