Residential Rates as of October 1, 2014
There are four rate components to your natural gas bill:
- Customer Charge of $12.00 per month. The Customer Charge includes the cost of reading the meter, maintaining customer records, and accounting for bill payments, credit and other transactions affecting your account. This charge is incurred even if no gas is used during the month.
- Distribution Charge $0.48163 per therm. The Distribution Charge pays for the operation and maintenance of the pipeline system that brings gas to your home. This is a volumetric charge that increases with demand.
- Cost-of-Gas Charge of $0.4970 per therm. The Cost-of-Gas Charge is the cost Okaloosa Gas pays to purchase natural gas. This rate is calculated by projecting the cost of natural gas for the next three months. Next we look back over the previous three month period and compare the cost-of-gas rate we charged the customer to the actual cost-of-gas paid by the Gas District over that period. Then we apply the difference to the projection for the next three months
- Regulatory Compliance Charge of $0.0723 per therm. A charge designed to recover the costs incurred by the District by virtue of compliance with federal and state mandated operating and safety standards, without monetary gain or loss by the District.
