Cap and trade
On July 3, 2018, the Ontario Government cancelled the Cap and Trade program. From October 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018, there will be no additional charge on your natural gas bills associated with your greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Typical residential customers* who buy their gas supply from Enbridge will see an $80 decrease due to the Ontario government's cancellation of the cap and trade program.
Enbridge Gas rates are reviewed and approved by the Ontario Energy Board (OEB). On August 30, 2018, the OEB instructed us to remove Cap and Trade charges. Enbridge Gas has included Cap and Trade related information in its October Quarterly Rate Adjustment Mechanism (“QRAM”). Read the press release.
*Calculations are based on the assumption that typical residential customers, who buy their gas supply and transportation from Enbridge, use about 2,400 cubic metres of natural gas a year for home and water heating.
