Energy charge/Cost of gas (21-26%) - The per unit cost (price per gigajoule (GJ)) for the natural gas used during the billing period. This is the cost for the commodity itself and does not include the cost to deliver natural gas to homes and businesses. Prices are based on the competitive energy market. Energy charges vary between retailers, who purchase natural gas in the market through a combination of long-term and short-term contracts with suppliers. If you do not choose to sign a contract with a competitive retail service provider, your rate will fluctuate each month and your regulated rate is approved by the AUC.
