I would like to challenge the information provided on this chart. It may be accurate but it is not comprehensive. Hydro One is NOT
Ontario. It is one of many companies that provide power to Ontario. Why was it chosen to represent Ontario? Hydro Quebec has provided a comparison of rates for 2015 and while rates in Ontario have risen, I don’t believe they are much different from last year. https://issuu.com/hydroquebec/docs/comp_2015_en?e=1151578/31242512
