Common natural gas rates

​One company, one common rate

As of January 1, 2015, FortisBC does business as one company. Previously, we did business as separate utilities to deliver natural gas in the province. This meant that you paid different rates for your natural gas, depending on where you lived.

By coming together as one company, and moving to one common rate over the next two years, we will eliminate current rate differences that exist across BC.

What this means for you

As of January 1, 2015, your natural gas rate changed. And the look of your FortisBC bill changed too. Going forward, you’ll see rate changes happen incrementally over the next two years (2016 to 2018) as all customers move to common rates. 
Find out what this means for you and see examples of your new bill:

 Benefits at a glance

  • Equal access to the same programs and services we offer across all service regions. 
  • Cost of large projects, such as upgrades to natural gas infrastructure, will be shared among a wider customer base, lessening the cost to each of you over the long-term.
