- Basic charge
This is a flat daily fee that partially recovers the fixed costs of our system, whether or not you are using any natural gas but are connected to the system.
- Delivery charge
Based on consumption, this charge pays for the cost of delivering gas through our system to your home or business. This helps cover the costs of maintaining our natural gas distribution system, make a modest profit and invest in our business and improvements to meet customers’ needs. Delivery charges are reviewed by the British Columbia Utilities Commission (BCUC) annually.
- Storage and transport
Storage and transport charges reflect the prices we pay to other companies to store and transport gas through their pipelines and infrastructure. We do not mark up these costs, and they are reviewed by the BCUC annually.
- Cost of gas
The cost of gas is the market price of natural gas itself. We don’t mark up the cost of gas – you pay what we pay. Natural gas is currently at some of its lowest commodity rates in the last 10 years. We review the cost of natural gas every three months with the BCUC.
