It will cost Manitobans more to heat their homes this winter after the Public Utilities Board approved a rate increase.
An application from Centra Gas Manitoba sought to raise the rate five percent effective November 1. The increase works out to be about $43 a year.
The PUB also granted a two-year rate rider to recover $23.3 million of the $46.7 million Centra spent to supply additional gas to Manitoba customers during the winter of 2013/14.
Rates will be reviewed again on February 1, 2015.
