    Parker, Thanks for posting this. I am afraid that my poor old eyes cannot read the table, so I would be grateful if you would post the link to the EIA site. The main “competitiveness” issue relates to the rates charged to industry, so I would like to compare Ontario to U.S. states that are trying to draw more industrial jobs. By the way, Ontario’s IESO lacks transparency in several areas. In addition to the current delivered rates to different classes of customer, I wish they would publish the total cost of each source of generation and the average price per kWh paid for that generation over the course of each quarter and each year, as well as the quantity of energy purchased. If the OEB did the same (to show the solar energy costs), we would be able to judge just which sources of power generation was contributing to higher commodity rates over time. The lack of transparency is, I believe, deliberate.

    Bob, I agree with your comments on transparency or lack thereof.
    Link to report is here and the chart is on page 123.

    So do I agree with Bob’s comments regarding the lack of transparency as a tactic being used.
    All of the various tactics being used to present this ‘complex’ data need to be identified and exposed. Obfuscation and confusion are well known ways of preventing people from fully grasping the truth.
    Thanks for the clarity you bring Parker.
    What on earth can be done to stop this?
    Would calling a Royal Commission to investigate all of this be in order?

      Then who would be appointed to a Royal Commission to investigate this?
