Hydro Facts – Ontario Most Expensive in Canada
First, a word or two on Hydro One. It was one of five — yes, five — new entities carved out from its predecessor, Ontario Hydro, by the Progressive Conservatives as part of an alphabet soup of electricity entities in the late 1990s.

Alberta was left out of the comparisons due to multiple utilities operating throughout the province on different systems
