Other provinces burn coal or build dams.
There's other reasons besides the fact that we closed down our coal plants for high energy prices. *Ackhmm* political ones *cough* but it's too lengthy to get in to.
Clean coal isn't that bad either, and we have access to Niagara falls but we aren't interested in bringing that up to snuff either.

I noticed it on my account last year after someone posted their Home Health Record on RFD. Maybe they are staggering the availability on accounts?

Here my current graph

Stove, bbq, dryer, fireplace, furnace, tankless water heater

Note that my Nov 2015 and Oct 2016 are incorrect even though I submit the actual meter reads on time. They estimated only 6m of usage both times so the following month is also off slightly...there is no point in posting my current comparison
I received my Oct 2016 invoice and noticed they corrected the read to actual for billing. The online graph has been updated.

There realistically isn't such a thing as "clean coal". The costs to sequester all of the pollutants negates the benefit of coal, not to mention the pollution released from mining it. Also the technology to sequester hasn't been proven.
I'm happy to save more energy at home to offset the costs of not using coal. And I'm happy to not have the same air pollution as China.

Unfortunately Union Gas lacks behind Enbridge for data and even rebates. So no comparison data from them.

Oakville hydro does provide comparison data for gas.

And water.

Looks like the historical data have been re-graphed. Last year I was consuming less than Efficient similar homes. Now when I look at the historical data (2015, 2016 etc) my consumption is now mid-pack.
