TORONTO, March 19, 2012 /CNW/ - Today the Ontario Energy Board approved changes to the prices Union Gas Limited (Union) will charge its customers for natural gas effective April 1, 2012.
Change in Gas Supply Charge (including Gas Commodity Price Adjustment)
|Rate Zone||Price ¢/m3|
Annual Rate Impact for an Average Consumer (using 2,600 m³/month)
|Rate Zone|| Total Annual
|Fort Frances||- $90.21|
The main reason for the rate change is a decrease to the forecast price Union expects to pay for natural gas for the next 12 months.
Note: Natural gas rates are based on a forward looking forecast for the next 12 months. Forecasts are never perfect, so the billed price is normally either higher or lower than the actual market price. The difference is tracked in a special account (called the Purchased Gas Commodity Variance Account or PGCVA) and is adjusted with a credit or a charge in subsequent QRAM applications.
Union Residential Rates Effective April 1, 2012
|Rate Zone||Natural Gas Price ¢/m3||Gas Price Adjustment ¢/m3||Effective Price ¢/m3|
