Higher Gas Bills – Update
You have probably noticed that your gas bill is higher than usual. We understand that higher natural gas bills can be complicating and we are with you in this. Check our our ENERGY SAVING TIPS for easy and low-cost ways to reduce energy consumption.
Your natural gas bill is made of three components:
- Federal Fuel Charge
- Operating charges to provide the utility service
- Cost of Energy
Federal Fuel Charge: The Federal Fuel Charge is collected based on natural gas usage. This is commonly called the “Carbon Tax” and more information can be found on the government website at gc.ca
Operating Charges: Rockyview Gas Co-op provides the utility service to our member/customers.
Cost of Energy: Consumption increases when it gets colder, and with unseasonably cold temperatures recently we have seen near record high levels of gas use.
Energy prices have been higher in recent months than in previous years. Our natural gas supplier, Gas Alberta, continues to provide competitive gas prices. The chart below shows the forecast monthly gas price lower than the 5-year “locked-in” rate by some Energy Retailers. For additional information visit the Gas Alberta website / Gas Rates in Alberta
