The cost of electricity has been a “hot” political topic lately, and rightly so, as costs continue to climb. Greater Sudbury Hydro controls only the “distribution rate”, which is part of the “delivery charge” line of your bill. The rest of the charges are collected by GSH on behalf of other agencies, but they flow through and do not remain with Greater Sudbury Hydro.
Our goal is to provide the service levels demanded by our customers at the lowest possible cost. We have worked hard to reach this goal. Although the business has become increasingly more complex our employees continue their efforts and dedicate themselves to the challenge of adapting to customer expectations. As we take on new challenges, we are committed to meeting those challenges with a well-trained and motivated staff that hold our customers as the focal point of all of their efforts.
