Natural gas rates – latest news

Quarterly Rate Service

We have received approval for a Primary Gas Rate change effective February 1, 2017. This rate change results in an annual bill increase for a typical residential customer of 4.5 per cent or approximately $32 per year effective February 1, 2017. For larger volume customers, annualized bill impacts range from a increase of 5.3 per cent to 10.5 per cent depending on the rate class and level of consumption.

This rate change is a result of changes to the forecast price that Centra pays for natural gas and the amounts in gas deferral account.

The Primary Gas Rate for all Quarterly Rate Service customers will increase to 11.27ยข per cubic metre effective February 1, 2017. The price that we pay for this Primary Gas supply option is passed directly on to customers without any markup. As a result, we do not make any profit on the sale of Primary Gas.

Fixed Rate Service

The Fixed Rate Service is offered to natural gas consumers on a periodic basis throughout the year. It provides residential and commercial customers the option to lock in their Primary Gas rate for a 1, 3, or 5-year term through Manitoba Hydro.
