How Natural Gas Rates Are Set

Business Natural Gas Charges


Your business has three types of charges on its natural gas bill: gas cost recovery, distribution and customer costs.

Distribution: The charges include operation and maintenance for pipelines and storage systems.

Customer Costs: The charges include customer-related activities such as reading meters, billing and customer service.

Gas Cost Recovery: The cost of natural gas is measured in units of one thousand cubic feet (Mcf). The price we charge for gas is the price we pay for it, including the cost of providing the gas.
