HOW TO READ YOUR BILL
The Public Utilities Commission has required Colorado Natural Gas, Inc. to bill customers using a four part bill. This requirement is in anticipation of pending deregulation of natural gas industries and to be mor informative to the customer than a bill with only the amount of gas used and a price.
Part One - Distribution: This covers the cost of the system including operations, overhead costs, employee salaries, construction and transportation of the gas from where we receive the gas to your home or business.
Part Two - Commodity: This is the actual cost that we paid for the gas that was used. Colorado Natural Gas, Inc. is not allowed to add any charges to this part of the bill.
Part Three - Upstream Pipeline Charge: This cost is for the transportation of the gas from the point where we purchase the gas to our pipe system. We are not allowed to add any addtional charges to this charge.
Part Four - Facilities Charge: The Public Utilities Commission determines this charge as a fixed fee to cover a portion of the fixed cost of maintaining the entire distribution system.
Service Line: There may be a Service Line charge on the bill. This would be your cost of installing the line from the street to the house or building, or for installing an additional line from the meter at the original building to a second building such as a garage or workshop.
Demand Side Management: These charges recover costs associated with energy efficiency programs that are mandate by the State of Colorado and approved by the Public Utility Commission. For more information regarding energy savings programs call 1-877-974-7688 or visit www.excessisout.com.
The Distribution, Commodity and Upstream Pipeline Charge are based on the amount of natural gas that is actually used. In other words, the more gas that is used, the higher the amount of these charges. The less gas that is used, the lower these charges will be.
Delinquent accounts are subject to suspension, termination and possible collections as outlined by PUC regulations. Any past due account that requires a trip to the house for notification of delinquency or to disconnect service will be charged a trip fee. If your accound has become past due please contact our offices immediately to avoid this fee and possible disconnection of service.
