article by CBC news, in the fall of 2010, the Ontario Government declared that the province's rates will rise 46 per cent by 2015. 46% increase. That's not an easy thing to say, nor is it going to be an easy thing to pay for down the road. So, what are you going to do about it? One thing some people do is monitor their energy usage like a hawk; they'll buy a third-party home energy power meter, unplug appliances they're not using, even have set times as to when they'll use the washing machine or electricity-heavy appliances during the time of the day when electricity costs the least. Doing this is great, but when it gets dark, you'll still need lights around the home. And the truth is, we use lights. I don't think its naive to say, most people will never use lights because it costs money. It's just a matter of having an energy saving mindset. Another thing people can do is break down your energy costs per appliance. For example, I use 28 light bulbs in my condo, I have a fridge, I use the dishwasher twice a month at the most, use the washing machine and dryer once a week, my Internet cable service is on 24-hours a day, use the iron every other day for 5 minutes - that's pretty much it. Living alone has its perks, but I know that as soon as I'm married with kids, I'm going to be even more conscious about how I'm using electricity just as my dad was when I was still a kid carelessly leaving the lights on in every room I entered. So, from this information, the next step is finding the approximate percentage of how much energy each appliances uses each month.
