Natural gas rates quarterly review

Utilities Kingston has reviewed the rates for the natural gas commodity, transportation & storage, and cap & trade effective August 1, 2018.

Effective August 1, 2018:

  • There will be no change to the commodity price for natural gas, and
  • The transportation and storage price for natural gas will increase by 0.0062 $/m3 to 0.1049 $/m3, and
  • The current cap and trade charge in the delivery block rates will remain until the end of 2018. This is to recover costs related to expenditures Utilities Kingston has made on this program.

The overall effect of the price changes will increase a typical residential bill (2,300 m3 annually) by an estimated $14.26 annually. Learn more from our gas rates page.

The next quarterly review of these rate components will be for November 1, 2018 implementation.
