Is $651 how much you have to pay every month, P.C.?  Or is that every quarterly?

I have no idea how much extra our landlord has to fork out for our hydro but I do my best to help them conserve energy.   I saw on the news about ways to conserve energy and that we waste energy on unnecessary plugs that don't need to be plugged in.  For example, when you are done charging your cell phone, unplug the charger.  If you don't unplug it, it will still use electricity.  I forgot the term they used.  So, I've been checking around the house to make sure we have nothing plugged in unnecessarily.

I think you should pay your hydro bill in pennies, just for spite.

 No....that was for a 2 month period, purelife.  I'm sure there are ways to cut back further...but the point is....why the drastic jump ?  That's what makes no sense to me.

Lil Me....I like your thinking.     I could probably almost do it too.

There was an article about someone doing this at airscare awhile ago.. they didnt accept the payment in all pennies and the guy took them to court over it. The judge ruled the guy was being vindictive or something and ruled although its legal tender, in an ungainly amount they didnt have to accept it.

I wanted to pay my airscare in pennies and found that info before I did it.
