BC hydro is using Accenture for accounting....bad stuff is happening
    #3909709 - 03/13/05 12:55 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

i dont have any news clippings or links to back me up...this is all first hand experience of what they are doing to me and my family and apparently others throughout the province.

To start off things, BC Hydro was a public owned service that provides electricity to the province of BC in Canada. It was not so much of a business as a service. That said we got cheap electricity. In the last couple years Gordon decided to to use Alexanders firm to collect bills and run the money end of things. BC hydro got paid their rate, and Accenture is sent to go collect and get money how they please. including charging more.

here are the direct changes to us right now. they added a daily charge of 11 cents. They have cut their meter readings in half. So now they are charging people for what they *think* they will be using and then make up the difference every 4 months when they read the meters. my father was charged $112 too much for this one thing.

heres the real ball grabber that pisses me off. Take my dad for instance. He has been a paying customer for over 30 years...always paid bills on time. Now they are charging a security deposit. i think it was 230 something.

yes people may not care about 11 cents a day (thats what, like 40 bucks a year or there abouts?), but there is a bigger picture. imagine 1 million people paying this. this cash is going to Accenture, not the people anymore.

anyway im interested to see others views on this matter. im not paying these anymore, my dad is not paying them anymore, and my sister will not be paying it anymore. they have lost 3 customers just in one family. my dad is keeping a paper trail, and he has asked them repeatedly to disconnect and STOP billing him. he has shut off the house from the grid so that there will be no power used. they keep sending him bills though... This will almost certainly end up in court, and a law suite will likely be filed.

we keep loosing our services. gotta take a stand sometime.

peace.

yes sir. we are building up the paper work and will be going to a lawyer in about a month or so, unless of course they do the un imaginable and fuck off....im betting they wont. in fact we are expecting them to take us to court before we take tehm to court.

indeed a good idea.we are sort of spreading the info throughout. honestly i think most of the family thinks we are paranoid extremists or some crap. but our province is getting sold out right from under us.

this is partly why i posted here...as i know there are many bcers on the site. i mention it to people i know and work with and i get teh same lame answer....well jsut pay it and they will stop bugging you. what a way to live.

You should start up a small website or something to act as a basis for communications and gathering people to join your cause. Put up flyers and stuff to get a whole mess of people behind a large class action lawsuit. Teach the bastards where they listen, their pocketbook.

i think it may be more financial feasable if we jsut tag along with someone else...doing this thing solo would sure to fuck us realyl good. fighting government has never turned out good with people i know.
