The Public Utilities Board has approved an application by Centra Gas Manitoba to increase natural gas rates next month.
Effective November 1, rates will increase from $0.1092/m3 to $0.1142/m3. The projected annual bill increase for a typical customer is 1.4% or $11 per year.
Primary gas rates will be reviewed again on February 1.
Gas rates for customers that have signed fixed-term fixed-price contracts with either Centra or a private broker are not affected.
