Off the table

For many years, Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro slash Nalco(r) have published an annual report, to which was appended valuable statistical tables, including the following section showing average rates paid per kwh by various electricity customers.

This table — slightly edited from the original to add the year headers — is from the 2009 version of the report:
For some unknown reason, the inclusion of this table of rates was discontinued in Nalco(r)'s 2010 Business and Financial Report, laid before the House of Assembly last month.

In a totally unrelated development, "cheap" Muskrat Falls electricity will cost 14.3 cents a kwh to generate and deliver — wholesale — to Newfoundland.

The government script is warning us that oil prices are going to skyrocket, which will drive up rates because of thermal generation in Holyrood. In 2008, oil prices WERE up, peaking at $145 per barrel. However, there was NO increase in rates. And now, Nalcor is applying for a 7 percent increase, with no apparent justification (except, perhaps, to brace us for increases brought on by Muskrat Falls).

OPEC will also be increasing oil production to get the price of oil down to $70 a barrel. That's the price they want it to stay at. Don't look good for our budget which I believe is based on $110 a barrel(?). Me thinks our government is screwing with us.

You're all a bunch of heretics.
