Bills shocking

Energy-conscious Vernon family outraged by Hydro bill for townhome

I have a question. What is the average B.C. Hydro bill for a three-bedroom townhouse with electric heat?

We are energy efficient and have tried everything to bring our bill down. We are a single-income family and for the the past four months, our bill was just over $900. I find this outrageous.

I would like to know how other families are handling these huge Hydro bills. We have tried talking to B.C. Hydro and of course are getting no answers, just pay the bill.

We have two children and having no electricity is not an option. But I don’t know how families are supposed to pay these bills.
