I used to, and it wasn't that bad. The state picks up some of the cost to offset the expense for the utility and the consumer. In many cases the "utility" is the village Genset.

Lol, I lived in Sandspit(Queen Charlottes)for a summer and couldn't beleive everything was run on a big ass diesel burning generator. Pretty wild.

if the state has natural resources to offset folks high expenses for living in remote regions thats cool, wouldnt want to see tax dollars go to it though, its their choice to live in the middle of nowhere, why should I pay for that?
I do want to see the northern lights someday, guess I should start saving some seashells up for my plane ride. :)

One big jenny in town running everything, I guess thats easier than a 400 mile extension cord!

It's all BC Hydro on the Charlottes Paul and you can bet that that expense is being shared by us all.
