Natural gas rates stay flat

FortisBC has announced natural gas rates will remain the same through the end of the year.

The company has received approval from the BCUC to maintain the cost of natural gas, and as of Oct. 1, 2018 customers will see no change on their bills.

“Natural gas prices in our province continue to remain near their lowest levels in over a decade and our natural gas customers have not seen a rate increase in two years,” says Diane Roy, vice-president of regulatory affairs at FortisBC. “The preference for natural gas is reflected by our continued customer growth.”

Over three million British Columbians use natural gas daily, with 58 per cent of homes using it as their primary heating source.

Below are the rate changes for each region effective October 1, 2018:

Mainland, Vancouver Island and Whistler

  • There is no change to the current cost of gas rate for residential customers at $1.549 per gigajoule (GJ).

Fort Nelson

  • Residential customers in Fort Nelson will not see any changes to their bill. The current cost of gas rate is $1.571 per GJ.

Revelstoke

  • Residential customers will see an increase to the cost of propane rate from $11.791 per GJ to $12.842 per GJ. This is an increase of $1.051 per GJ.
