While the market prices of natural gas fluctuate based on things like higher use in colder weather, natural gas remains the best value for your energy dollar at about half the cost of electricity, oil, or propane, and natural gas prices are expected to remain competitive for years to come.
Although natural gas is abundant, certain factors—such as supply and demand and even the weather—can affect how much it costs. Every three months we carefully review market prices, compare them with the rates customers currently pay and adjust rates up or down to reflect market changes.
Natural gas is still the best value for your energy dollar
The rates are approved by our regulator, the Ontario Energy Board (OEB), which ensures that they are fair and reasonable.
You pay what we pay—we pass the costs to buy natural gas from the market on to you without marking up the price.
Natural gas provides great value and is still the most affordable fuel choice.
