THEFT: Man Demands To Know Why Government Is Charging Him Tax On Solar Energy He Generates Himself

Even though Currie’s house is a net-zero home, the HST (harmonized sales tax) still charges.

Currie pays absolutely nothing to Maritime Electric for his electricity, yet he is still billed for the tax on every kilowatt-hour used, just like any other customer.

“It’s nonsense really. It should be exempt,” Currie said. “We’re using it for heat, for one. Oil’s exempt. Now that we’re producing electricity we’re getting charged for it.”

While heating for oil is exempt from HST on P.E.I., other energy sources for heating such as wood, or electricity, are not.
