Union Gas rates could be on the rise next month.
The utility has applied to the Ontario Energy Board to increase its rate by an average of $16 a month.
The rate would impact about 40,000 Union Gas customers in this region.
But Union Gas isn’t unique in asking for a rate adjustment. An unseasonably cold winter has also led Enbridge to apply to have its rates hiked.
If approved, the natural gas rate adjustment would take effect on April 1.
