Fixed costs for natutal gas
So how much do you pay for the “fixed” costs on your gas bill? In other words, how much do you pay per month, regardless of whether you use any gas or not?
The reason I ask is that it is a fact that as the heating load is decreased as in a superinsulated, super tight home, that the price advantage of gas over electric also decreases. Eventually, if the load goes low enough, electric heat becomes the cheaper solution…
Here in Saskatchewan, the fixed portion of my gas bill is $15/month. In Alberta, I’ve heard that it is over $30.
