    As I understand it, electricity rates for consumers (and some small businesses) are frozen at 4.3 cent/kilowatt hour for the next few years... I think that's Bill 206. Initially, when the market opened, the prices fluctuated (ie. weather, supply/demand). The electricity market is open to competition which means you can buy your electricity from a supplier of your choice... but the supplier can also sell electricity to others (ie. other provinces). You should check out http://www.theimo.com for more information... HTH!
