ARGYLE – Imagine opening up your hydro bill and being greeted with a list of charges exceeding $900.
Golden Valley resident Dayna Panay doesn’t have to imagine. For her, this astronomical hydro bill is a reality.
“It floored me,” said Panay, who recently moved from Udora into a home on Jacks Lake Road, just east of Port Loring. “I never imagine in my wildest dreams a $900 hydro bill. I don’t even heat with hydro. I have a heating bill on top of this.”
Panay, a single mother of two, moved up to the region and took a job working from home, hoping to save money by cutting out daycare costs. While she expected to see a slight increase in utility fees, she never expected a bill this high.
“I never imagined that hydro would outweigh daycare costs,” said Panay.
