I had to replace my furnace motor and control board this fall, the first thing the technician asked was do u get allot of power surges. He recommend a surge protector be installed on the main supply into the house. Reply With Quote

Oct 29, 2017 | 11:29 3 This is what happens when NEVER do any maintenance on after construction. Also it does not help when the government (NDP or SP) keeps taking any extra money as a dividend and leaves very little in the pot to do maintenance with. Reply With Quote

Oct 29, 2017 | 11:42 4 We went without power 2 weeks ago for 32 hrs. One evening in middle of September our power went on and off 13 times in a 3 hour period. The bill for the furnace motor, board and travel was 1085 dollars and only reason is power surges. The peasant just keeps spending to keep going and yearly increases to power bills. Every time u call in and ask if it can be looked at all u hear is sorry for that inconvience.

Oct 29, 2017 | 13:53 6 Shitty infrastructure aside....our power bill is almost beyond lunacy! Anybody I talk too has the same comment. We have energy efficient everything in our house from led light bulbs to high eff furnace. House built in 08 furnace rarely kicks in during winter days just seems to run on cloudy days a bit or at night. Our natural gas bill is minimal. Someone needs to look at where the hell all the money goes from people's second mortgage...er I mean power bill.

Oct 29, 2017 | 13:58 7 By the way I asked sask power about billing and all they could come up with was "I don't know" and "well there were rate increases"

Oct 29, 2017 | 14:01 8 This isn't rocket science.....saskpower has poles inspected then waits until mother nature does the real inspection....

If you start replacing poles on an H line that were installed at the same time ....it's pretty logical to assume they all have to be replaced.....

Start a program that does it without triple overtime and unsafe conditions. ..... Reply With Quote
Oct 29, 2017 | 15:16 9 same issues as Canada. Resource rich but no cheap power.

Oct 29, 2017 | 16:02 10 Looks like I should buy shares in the generator companies, by the looks of the fall so far I will need one for the winter or the family won't be too happy. Reply With Quote
Oct 29, 2017 | 19:03 11 I have a 1600sf house with electric clothes dryer, stove, and water heater. All led and high eff furnace. Farm and shop are on a seperate service. My bill is a crazy $1450.00 per 3 months. I might have to get solar and wind power just to lower the power bill. What are others paying. Reply With Quote

Posts have repair on them still standing but if you passed with a bike and hockey stick and hit them probably would go over. Reply With Quote

So which was the bill for? the house or the farm and shop? Reply With Quote
Oct 30, 2017 | 21:29 23 It is just for the house. I think My family must have a growop that I didnt know about. Reply With Quote

Grassy, Manitoba Hydro must be cheap. Wait intil you get a bunch of windmills and then watch your rates go up. Reply With Quote
Oct 31, 2017 | 07:17 27 It has a heated floor in the 1 bathroom. I phoned saskpower and they said something is crazy about that amount of power. Its 3 times what most houses that size cost to run. Im looking into a ground leak from the meter to the house. Reply With Quote

Lol! Good luck with the wild goose chase...lol. I've been down that road already. I even had them out to check our meter. Just accept it because it's going nowhere but up. Like they say at telemiracle....where are we going?!.......HIGHER!!!!!! Reply With Quote
Oct 31, 2017 | 07:53 29 A business owner in Saskatoon thought his bill was way too high for the few computers he was using so he went on the internet and purchased an add-on the line meter. Found out he was paying for his and everyone else in the building because of how it was hooked up. He got a rebate that prepaid his power for years. Goess Sask Power squared up with the other guys who were getting away without paying for years. Maybe you could check for "leaks" in your system. Reply With Quote
Oct 31, 2017 | 09:02 30 I bought a energy usage meter and hooked it up to my panel yesterday, so far it looks as though the meter at the pole is reading 3 times higher than the meter in the house. Reply With Quote
