Your Natural Gas Bill
Regardless of whether you purchase natural gas from Centra Gas or from a gas marketer, your bill will contain standard costs for the provision of natural gas services.
This is natural gas received from Western Canadian sources. It can be purchased from a natural gas marketer, or from Centra Gas. Your gas commodity rate represents nearly all of the natural gas used in your home. If you are a typical residential customer, the cost of gas commodity is approximately 60 percent of your total annual bill. This is the portion of your bill affected by your choice of gas purchase options.
Federal Carbon Charge
The charge applied as part of the federal government's carbon pollution pricing system.
This is the cost incurred by Centra to deliver the natural gas to your home or business.
This charge recovers some of the same costs as the distribution to customer charge but does not depend on how much natural gas a customer uses. It helps pay for such things as the maintenance of metres and underground pipelines, as well as cost of metre reading, billing and record keeping.
