Residential natural gas rates

Your residential natural gas rate is made up of commodity and delivery charges, as well as a basic charge that includes approximately 40 cents for the Clean Growth Innovation Fund. Commodity charges are reviewed by the British Columbia Utilities Commission (BCUC) every three months, while delivery charges are reviewed annually. If any rate changes occur, the BCUC always approves them first before they are passed on to you.
