Canadian Capitalist June 22, at If you can handle it, self-insurance is cheaper in the long run. It does seem to me that renting is at least competitive with owning in your case. Yes, I do wish I had acted on your post. I agree that those planning to move shortly would be better off renting and passing the contract over the new owner. TonyR June 22, at Here the tank is considered part of the house just like th furnace. Out of curiosity, how old was your old tank when it died?
It will continue for those already on that track, but would be unavailable for new applicants. On-site electricity rebate started in the U. Many sources instead of just one at a costly, great remove from millions of end-users stabilize the grid, preventing the massive black-outs we get with centralized systems. Whoever might one day hook up to a Site C proposed dam would have an uncertain future, since the constructors find no solid footing, and the river banks have collapsed several times. What happens if they build it and it fails?
Who can pay those costs?

This was to be our first-ever RVing experience. We were very excited, just having purchased our first house trailer, and were looking forward to our vacation at Baie des Sables with our little pound fluff-ball of a dog, “Bo”. I was well acquainted with the park’s rules about dogs: So, we arrive late in the afternoon, park our trailer, and begin the process of setting up camp, which takes about an hour.
While my husband did most of this, I helped out while holding our dog on the leash. As we worked, a guy walked by our campsite with a good-sized black dog. Bo barked a couple of times, but I quieted him quickly. Eventually we finished our set-up, and while I made supper in the trailer, my hubby read at the picnic table with the dog sleeping at his feet.
Then I happened to notice a white Baie des Sables pickup drive slowly past us, as if looking at us. I thought it might be because I had mentioned at the Welcome Desk that we were first-timers, so maybe they wanted to see how we managed. But then, less than 10 minutes later, he returned going the other direction, went past us, and then stopped.
Coincidentally, at that same moment, someone walked by with two dogs, a small breed and a Husky with an upright tail a sign of aggression to another dog. Bo barked a few times before my husband managed to get hold of him, but it was already too late. The pickup had reversed into our campsite and a man got out.

B.C. Hydro report says climate change events cause worse storms, more outages
Phase 1 In the first phase of the review government is working with BC Hydro to identify cost savings, efficiencies, new revenue streams and other changes to keep electricity rates low and predictable over the long-term, while ensuring BC Hydro has the resources it needs to continue to provide clean, safe and reliable electricity. Government expects recommendations from the first phase of the review this summer to inform a refreshed rates plan and assist BC Hydro in preparing its next rates application to be filed with the B.
Phase 2 In the second phase of the review, starting in late , the Province will establish an expert panel to provide recommendations to ensure BC Hydro is well positioned to maximize opportunities flowing from shifts taking place in the global and regional energy sectors, technological changes, and climate action.

Rule 1 The object of bonding is to have an impedance sufficiently low in order to a facilitate the operation of the overcurrent devices in the circuit on the occurrence of a fault of negligible impedance from an energized or phase conductor to exposed metal, and b limit the duration of the voltage above ground on this exposed metal.
This object is accomplished by means of completing the fault path of the bonding arrangement of the consumer’s installation which would normally have to be such that a current of not less than 5 times the rating of the overcurrent device protecting the circuit will flow on the occurrence of a fault of negligible impedance via a bonding conductor back to the solidly ground source.
BC Hydro Interview Questions in Vancouver, BC
It is part of a longer interurban rail line that runs from the New Westminster bridge, through Surrey, Cloverdale, Walnut Grove and Langley, and then on to Abbotsford. BC Hydro still owns the land that the tracks are on, and in the agreement, BC Hydro reserved the right to operate a railway, including passenger trains, on the tracks at no cost. The agreement that allows BC Hydro the right for passenger service was set to expire at the end of next month, with the option of another 21 year renewal.
On June 30, BC Hydro sent a letter to CP Rail requesting the 21 year renewal, after receiving pressure from the mayor of Langley and several advocacy groups. The renewal is not an automatic go, though.

Occasionally we lived with them for a short period of time. Sometimes we followed them around as they fished, harvested, collected wood and built or fixed their homes. And we too practiced living in off-grid homes and cabins for short stretches of time. Overall we visited about homes and interviewed about off-grid Canadians, as well as many American and British expats living in Canada.

May Charlotte Helston In the past, the term geothermal energy was used to describe high temperature resources extracted from deep, subterranean reservoirs. The definition has since been broadened to encompass low temperature geothermal resources as well. Low-Temperature Geothermal Low-T refers to energy resources derived from the earth’s shallow subsurface, i.
The word geothermal simply means earth-derived heat. Temperature increases with depth within the earth’s crust due to the heat generated from both primordial heat generated when the earth was created and radioactive decay; this is referred to as the geothermal gradient on average about 2. Low-T offers a range of low-intensity applications including use in spas, direct space heating and cooling systems, in aquaculture, agricultural drying, snow melting particularly in Iceland , and low wattage power generation.
Geothermal resources have been identified in over 90 countries and there are records of geothermal utilization in over 72 of them. Data from Natural Resources Canada and the U.

The provincial auditor general says that future BC Hydro ratepayers could be forced to deal with $ billion in debt that the utility has “deferred” into special accounts.
John Doyle released his report examining the practice of rate-regulated accounting Thursday, and expressed alarm about the utility’s financial management. Rate-regulated accounting lets companies defer revenues and expenses to future years. According to the auditor general, the utility has used deferral accounts to cover things like foreign exchange gains and losses, negotiations with First Nations and environmental compliance.
Doyle says that deferring expenses has allowed BC Hydro to record higher net income and the province to receive higher dividend payments. Sometime in the next year, Canada will adopt international financial reporting standards, which do not allow deferral accounts, but Doyle says the B. It distorts the financial condition — the real financial condition — of BC Hydro and it also has an impact on the finances of the province,” he told CTV News.
But Energy Minister Rich Coleman is defending the use of rate-regulated accounting, saying it’s employed by electrical utilities in other provinces. They’re used across the country,” he said.
