The folks at Toronto Hydro are smart cookies.
They know the hot Ontario summer is one of the highest demand times on the power grid. And they want to try to do something to help people lower their use, instead of just saying “cut back – you figure it out”. Finally, they also know that clotheslines are no longer banned anywhere in Ontario.
So, on three consecutive weekends – April 26, May 3 and May 10 – they’re giving away free clotheslines and discounts on other items at select locations across the GTA (you’ll need proof of Toronto residence, and there’s 500 available at each location each day).
