Residential Gas $/kWh Price Comparison


Note: Natural gas use is typically measured in gigajoules (GJ). In order to compare the cost of natural gas and renewable natural gas with electricity, which is measured in kilowatt hours (kWh), we did a conversion from GJ to kWh so we can compare the cost of all four in the same terms.

 

 Comfort, convenience and cost savings

 
 

 Space heating

 

About half of your home’s energy goes to space heating. Energy-efficient natural gas heating systems save money and keep you warm and cosy.

 

 Indoor living

 

​Natural gas appliances add comfort to your home, whether it’s warm clothes from the dryer or the cosy ambience of a natural gas fireplace.

 

 Backup power

 

​A natural gas generator can give you peace of mind that your electronics, fridge, lighting and security system will continue to run during a power outage.

 

 Water heating

 

​A water heater is the second-biggest energy user in your home. Natural gas helps shave expenses, while keeping up with your family’s demand for hot water. 

 

 Cooking

 

​Instant heat and precise temperature control are just two reasons why chefs prefer cooking with gas. Explore the “range” of natural gas appliances in the kitchen. 

 

 Outdoor living

 

​Extend natural gas piping to the patio and enjoy your backyard year-round with convenient outdoor natural gas appliances.
