Premier Darrel Dexter made good on one of his election promises today, by announcing he was removing the provincial portion of HST from all residential electricity.  Effective October 1, the HST rate on electricity will drop from 13% to 5%.

Previous to this anyone who heated their house with electricity qualified for this rebate.  Premier Dexter has apparently now decided that everyone will qualify for the rebate.
