Let's begin with your Natural Gas utility Union Gas (For Enbridge Gas customers click here )
This is the cost of the actual natural gas commodity that is consumed by your home or business. The rate you pay per cubic meter of natural gas is the part of the bill where Canadian Energy Protection will protect you from fluctuations and any increases that occur.
Transportation to Union Gas
This is the cost to transport natural gas from where it was produced into the Union Gas distribution system in Ontario.
The charge to store the gas until it is needed.
The cost to deliver natural gas from the Union Gas distribution system, to your home or business.
The fixed amount charged to each customer regardless of the amount of gas used.
The difference between the forecasted price and actual costs for natural gas and transportation to Ontario. These price adjustments are made quarterly to either refund or collect the difference, so you pay what Union Gas pays.
