A $38,000 power bill for a company in Ontario is raising red flags for what Alberta’s residents may face. Red Deer-Lacombe MP Blaine Calkins has been actively speaking to constituents about the breakdown of the bill, which shows that almost $21,000 of it was a line item called “Global Adjustments (GA).”
“The cost of the electricity on the bill was $3,600,” said Calkins. “So basically, 10 times the cost of the actual electricity.”
On top of those charges is HST, which was factored after the other items at $4,333. The company also paid water, sprinkler and sewer charges totaling $366 and change.
