Your natural gas bill includes three main charges. Below is a description of each:
- Gas Cost Recovery: The cost of the natural gas itself. This is measured in thousand cubic feet (Mcf). This cost is about 65% of your total bill and includes only what we pay for the natural gas. We also help reduce the price you pay by purchasing most of the natural gas you need during the summer. Summer is when prices are low and we store it underground until you need it.
- Distribution: These charges include operation and maintenance expenses for pipelines as well as storage of natural gas.
- Customer:These charges include billing and metering which are necessary to serve our customers. This is a fixed charge that is assessed every month.
The current price that we pay for natural gas and pass along without a markup is below. You can also see an 18-month review of the Gas Cost Recovery charges.
