EDMONTON - Electricity users in Alberta are being warned about a potential scam involving a device that purports to reduce their power bills.
The government says it is investigating complaints that telemarketers and door-to-door sales agents are offering what they call a "hydro power saver."
It supposedly reduces electricity costs by 30 per cent or more if it is plugged into a household socket.
Some customers have allegedly been told that the device — which costs up to $350 — is required by the federal government.
They've also been told that their bills could go up or their power might be disconnected if they don't buy it.
