That chart means less than nothing, BC Hydro has a two tier rate system.

Every HOME, meaning (house) falls into this tier.

Only the first 1250 watts are on tier 1...Everything used above that amount is considerably more.

Big homes with larger families receive hydro bills every 2 months rhat are..

$6 7 8 9 hundred dollars,
