TORONTO, Dec. 17 /CNW/ - Today the Ontario Energy Board approved changes to the natural gas rates Union Gas Limited (Union) will charge its customers effective January 1, 2011.
The natural gas commodity price consumers will pay for the period of January 1st to March 30th, 2011 are as follows:
|Rate Zone||Natural Gas Price ¢/m3||Gas Price Adjustment ¢/m3||Effective Price ¢/m3|
Residential consumers who purchase natural gas directly from Union and use 2,600 cubic meters (m3) a year will pay approximately $0 to $9 less per year depending on which of Union's five rate zones they live in. The change reflects a decrease in what Union forecasts it will have to pay for the natural gas it supplies its customers over the next 12 months, as well as changes to the gas price adjustment, and other related adjustments for the period of January 1, 2011 to March 30, 2011. The gas price adjustment represents the difference between actual gas commodity prices and the prices that were forecast last quarter.
