This rate is for large volume customers who use less than 12,000 GJ per month and have the ability to switch to an alternate energy source.
Interruption of service due to operational or weather related system constraints is at FortisBC's discretion and the customer can be required to stop using natural gas with a minimum of 2 hours notice.
The rate structure consists of fixed and variable charges.
The two fixed charges are independent of the volume of gas used each month:
- a daily basic charge
- an administration charge, and
There are variable charges for the delivery (also called transportation) of each GJ of gas consumed.
Rate 27 is authorized by written contract with FortisBC, and specific terms and conditions may apply.
Note: Customers have a separate gas commodity contract with their chosen gas marketer.
