Your EPCOR bill details the charges related to your natural gas services. Here are the billing charges and what they mean:
Natural gas commodity
The gas commodity charge is calculated using the actual cost of gas for the gas you use during the period of time between meter readings. The commodity rate you are billed at on your EPCOR bill depends upon the commodity purchase choice you have made. If you have not signed a contract with an energy retailer then you are automatically billed at the System Gas commodity rate for the natural gas commodity portion of your bill. If you have signed a contract with an energy retailer then you are billed at your contracted energy retailer rate for the natural gas commodity portion of your bill.
Delivery to you
This is the cost associated with the distribution and transportation of gas from the source to end user. This includes applicable cap and trade charges.
The administration charge which covers the cost of maintaining gas services and providing billing and customer service.
Allocation of payment between natural gas and non-natural gas charges
Payments are applied to charges on your account against the oldest charge first, and then based on the priority for the additional charges.
