Surrey – FortisBC has received approval to maintain the cost of natural gas rates from the British Columbia Utilities Commission (BCUC). As of October 1, 2017, FortisBC customers will see no change to the cost of gas on their billing statement. The cost of propane rates will also be maintained for customers in Revelstoke.
Every three months, FortisBC reviews the cost of gas rates with the BCUC to make sure rates passed on to customers cover the cost of purchasing the natural gas on their behalf. FortisBC does not mark up the cost of gas, customers pay what we pay.
Below are the continued current cost of gas rates for each region as of October 1, 2017:
Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island, Whistler, Fraser Valley, Interior, North and the Kootenays
· No change to the current rate of $2.050 per gigajoule (GJ).
