WATER is set to cost more during the summer following the introduction of a controversial seasonal tariff, it emerged yesterday.
I find myself a little confused here.
Something costs more at times of higher demand….clearly and obviously sensible.
However, there\’s another little thought at the back of my brain. Levelling out the cycle….we\’ve got lots of water in winter and not very much in summer. So we do want a system to store the first and deliver it during the second. And, umm, well, yes, I see the point of price systems here but….isn\’t managing that cycle what we\’re already paying the water companies to do?
