Kitchener Utilities

Natural gas rates effective November 1, 2019

Posted on Monday October 28, 2019

Kitchener city council has approved Kitchener Utilities natural gas rate change effective November 1, 2019.

The approved rate is:
• For M1* customers, delivery rate to increase to 7.0871 cents per cubic metre;

The impact of the rate change is expected to produce a increase of less than 1% or about $5 on the overall bill to the average system gas** residential customer consuming 2,100 cubic metres annually.

Kitchener Utilities takes a disciplined approach to buying natural gas. Our goal is to meet our customers’ expectations by providing natural gas supply with stable pricing. We do not make a profit on our natural gas supply program which is operated at cost. Customers on our supply and transportation program (system gas) pay what we pay our suppliers – without any mark-up or discount.

* M1 customers consume less than 50,000 cubic meters of gas annually. M2 customers consume greater than 50,000 cubic meters annually.

** system gas customers are those that participate in Kitchener Utilities’ gas supply and transportation program.  This is the default supply option.
