Bringing a common natural gas rate to Fort Nelson

On October 6, 2022, the British Columbia Utilities Commission (BCUC) approved FortisBC's application to implement common delivery and cost of gas rates for the Fort Nelson service area. Now, all of our customers pay a common rate for natural gas.

What are the benefits of a common natural gas rate to Fort Nelson customers?

We’re actively upgrading our natural gas infrastructure in Fort Nelson to continue to deliver safe and reliable energy to our customers. Delivery rates for Fort Nelson customers have been increasing to cover the upgrade costs. As these upgrades continue, the costs are covered by approximately 2,400 customers in Fort Nelson. By merging Fort Nelson into our larger customer base, the cost of these upgrades will be spread out over a million customers.

Stay tuned

Common rates will take effect on January 1, 2023. We will post further information soon.
