Here at Lambton College we have decided to opt into Class B enrollment from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021. Class A was only cost effective if our overall energy consumption for our one main building, which was Class A eligible, was greater than or less than 7.5% compared to the last GA payment period. Presently, our electricity consumption this past April and May, compared to last year’s, has already dropped by about 20-60%/ month/ account.
I would also like to point out that our LDC gave us the option to amalgamate existing buildings on the same property line as our original Class A building, providing us the opportunity to have one global adjustment fee for 1 out of 7 buildings. After considering this situation, it was still more advantageous for us to have all of our buildings as Class B considering the forecasted decline in our electricity consumption.
