Equal Hydro Charging Platform During COVID-19

With many families scrambling to work from home, care for loved ones, and care for children during the extended march break, we the signed ask Alectra Utilities (formerly PowerStream) to remove Peak Time Hydro pricing during the COVID-19 pandemic. Families are struggling as it is, with some having to miss work due to business closures, and some having to scramble to find activities to keep their children busy. The amount of hydro being used at one point during the day should be the last thing on their minds.

We ask Alectra Utilities to review and remove their Peak Pricing model for Hydro rates, and develop a fair and even-charged platform for hydro pricing during this pandemic. 

To quote our Ontario Premier, "These are unprecedented times". Business have been forced to adapt to the ever changing economic conditions being faced, as have we all on a personal level. We simply ask that the utility providers do the same for their customers who pay their salaries, pay their business taxes, and even pay for those to clean their offices. 

Many of us are feeling the pinch with having to be home, and waiting to do laundry until 7pm. Or waking up early to cook breakfast so we aren't charged "on peak" pricing. The time for change is here. The time for change is now
