The Gas Cost Recovery Rate (GCRR) is the amount charged to recover the cost incurred to purchase the natural gas used by our customers.
In Decision 2012-347, the Alberta Utilities Commission approved an interim rate increase of 10.109% to be applied to currently approved distribution charges. The interim rate change enables AUI to recover increasing costs of providing gas distribution service.
The increase applies to the distribution service charges currently approved for 2012 (Base Energy Charge, Fixed Delivery Charge, Demand Charge and Default Supply Provider Admin. Fee). For an average residence using 117 GJ annually, this equates to an increase of approximately $4.78 per month. The interim rate change does not apply to Gas Cost Charges (Rider ‘D’), Third-Party Transportation Cost Charges (Rider ‘G’) or special charges.
