The price of the natural gas delivery service throughout the Énergir distribution network is adjusted annually. The rate is assigned based on your consumption and applicable to the general, stable or interruptible services. Énergir derives its earnings solely from this component of your bill.
The price of the general distribution service is the sum of two components:
- Basic fees: the fixed portion of the bill. They are determined by a rate that varies according to annual consumption and are billed by the meter based on the number of days in the billing period.
- Unit price by volume withdrawn: a variable component of the bill. It is applied to the volume withdrawn during the billing period. The unit price decreases as the volume increases.
