Enbridge Gas Inc. application to raise its natural gas rates effective January 1, 2019

Enbridge Gas Inc.

The Ontario Energy Board approved the amalgamation of Enbridge Gas Distribution Inc. and Union Gas Limited in August 2018. The companies have amalgamated to form Enbridge Gas Inc.

Enbridge Gas Inc. has applied to the Ontario Energy Board to raise its natural gas rates effective January 1, 2019. If the application is approved as filed, the yearly bill of a typical residential customer within the former Enbridge Gas Distribution Inc. and Union Gas Limited rate zones will increase by the following amounts:

Rate Zones Residential Annual Bill Increase
Enbridge Gas $5.74
Union South $9.98
Union North East $4.88
Union North West $6.81


The rates are based on a rate-setting framework and other adjustments previously approved by the Ontario Energy Board for the period 2019-2023. The rates are set using a formula that is tied to inflation and other factors intended to promote efficiency.

Enbridge Gas Inc. is also asking the Ontario Energy Board to approve its rate design proposal and the costs of certain capital projects that are not part of their regular capital expenditures.

Other customers of Enbridge Gas Inc. may be affected. It is important to review the application carefully to determine whether you will be affected by the changes.
