I just received my utilities statement today and it was $25.57, which is more reasonable. However, my Enbridge bill was $108.44 with most of the charges coming from:
Customer Charge - $18.49
Delivery to you - $15.95
Transportation to Enbridge - $10.21
Gas Supply Charge - $31.48
New Direct Energy Home Services Charges - $23.50 - I'm not sure but is this a description of the total cost of gas that I'm using or is that the Gas Supply Charge above?
HST - $12.48 (Thanks to Dalton McGuinty)
It seems tha no matter how low I turn down the temperature, the costs of gas will still be high. When I'm working during the day, I turn it down to 16 and in the evenings, it's between 18-19. I find that since my townhouse is in the middle, it's not as cold. I'm not sure this has anything to do with it but it seems to help. I also dress warmer so that I can keep the cost of my gas bill down but it doesn't matter because there are so many charges that we have no control over.
What do you pay on average per month? Are my charges reasonable?
