The Ontario Energy board says customers across the province will see increases in their natural gas bills as the Liberal government’s cap-and-trade plan comes into effect next month (January 2017).
The OEB says the typical Enbridge residential customer will see a monthly increase of about $6.40.
For Union Gas customers, the OEB says they can expect to pay between $4.65 and $13.54 more a month depending on which zone they live in.
The OEB says a typical NRG customer will see a $6.98 increase on their monthly gas bill.
Under cap-and-trade, Enbridge, Union Gas and NRG are required to manage their own business operations and buy allowances to cover the emissions that their customers – including Ontario households and small businesses – produce.
NO word on the specific increases for Kitchener Utilities customers.
