Energy board approves gas rate hike

By tbnewswatch.com

Union Gas has been given the greenlight to hike their rates in this region.

The utility company applied to have its rates increased with the Ontario Energy Board. The extreme cold of this winter was said to be one of the contributing factors in asking for a rate increase.

The energy board’s approval means that the average Union Gas customer in Thunder Bay can expect to pay about an additional $16 a month for gas.

The hikes take effect in one week, and impact more than 40,000 customers.

The rate will be re-evaluated at the end of June.
