Alberta Electricity highest priced in North America!

The new power lines are DC whereas the existing ones are AC. AC causes the electromagnetic disturbance people complain about. NIMBYs use it as an excuse to keep "unsightly" power lines out of their neighborhood and the DC has none; they will have to find new complaints.

The DC power lines are larger in diameter than the AC. This is because AC travels in the line and DC travels on the outside of the line. DC does not have the reactance problems (resistance) that AC has so power companies can more exactly meet the actual demand rather than over guess it to prevent outages.
Power companies are looking at a 20% savings in costs adding the same to their profit lines. This 20% would pay for the new power lines 3 times over! But the Conservatives are telling you your power bills are going to go up to pay for the lines.
This is compounded where the cities use the higher chargers either for the electricity or single line charges as a tax bases; this is indirect taxation! 

So long as this province is stuck on PC or WRP who are arguably worse, the middle class will continue to take a beating!

The Calgary Herald who authored the story will not allow posts that are contrary to both the Conservatives and the Wild Rose Party!.  Yeltsin's story sources are subject of another post.

A holiday break away from politics.  Protect the consumers.
I  had the need to replace a tried and proven remote starter and by a series of defaults I ended up at "Visions".

I told the man what I needed; and he recommended the AUTOSTART  Model as-23TW-FM-V

This unit is said to have 3500 feet of effective communication.


From the center of a store to the Handicap area- No Response.

From the Doorway of the same store to the rear (not back) of their parking lot.  NO RESPONSE.
There was a dozed snowbank in the area.

What is it good for by default.  From your living room to your street side!

VISIONs who guarantee the world said they should have recommended the unit that was good for 1 mile.  Good for a mile when 3500 feet wont cover a block?? And it would cost me another 700 dollars to fix this oversight!

Fast and loose with number I would say.

My recommendations:  Stay away from Visions for remote car starters.
                                 : Stay clear of AUTOSTART!
