Vancouver Island

FortisBC has approval from the BC Utilities Commission (BCUC) to change our delivery rates and storage and transport rates, effective January 1, 2017. As part of our move to a common rate for all of BC, customers on Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast will see a decrease to their delivery rate, and their storage and transport rate. There will be no change to the cost of gas rate.

There are seven rate classes with related rate schedules for businesses to choose from. What type of business do you represent?

Rate 4

A large commercial operation or institution that ONLY uses natural gas in the SUMMER (e.g. municipal pools, summer agricultural crops)

Rate 6
