Transmission fees will hit Lethbridge power rates
Lethbridge Herald
Lethbridge residents could see their electric bills jump another $5.50 next month. But none of that hike will be going to the city's coffers. Instead, points out Mayor Chris Spearman, the extra cash will go to power companies in northern Alberta. "All Albertans are being affected by sharp increases in the transmission fees charged by the Alberta Electric System Operator," he says.

The boring old light bulb is getting a lot smarter
Calgary Herald
The light bulb is arguably one of the most important inventions in modern history, yet its evolution to becoming "smart" has generally been focused on energy savings and longevity, not control and functionality. This is why the onset of Internet-connected bulbs will play their own role in the new era of home automation.

With incandescent light bulbs disappearing, here's what you could use next
Toronto Star
By the end of this year, Thomas Edison's classic incandescent light bulb, a fixture in homes and offices for more than a century, will disappear from the shelves.

Will Saskatchewan embrace wind power?
The StarPhoenix
Wind and solar energy could supply at least 30 per cent of Saskatchewan's electrical power, if we want it to. That conclusion flows from a study by the International Energy Agency released recently. The IEA reports that wind and solar are crucial to meeting future energy needs while "decarbonizing" the power sector to respond to the issue of climate change. Deployment of both technologies has expanded rapidly in recent years — one bright spot in an otherwise bleak picture of clean energy progress. The IEA says this trend will continue for decades.
