Natural gas in British Columbia
Get a low rate and stellar service when you choose Just Energy.
Find affordable natural gas in British Columbia
If you’re lucky enough to call British Columbia your home, you’re probably no stranger to dark winter days and dense maritime snow. But you also might be familiar with secret Tofino surf breaks, the gnarliest ski lines and bike trails in Whistler, the best restaurants in Vancouver and Victoria, and Penticton’s burgeoning winery scene. You know Nelson is worth the trip on a snowy weekend—as much for the powder around Whitewater as for the breweries and restaurants in town—and that this province is much more than just a summer tourist destination.
You also know just how important it is to have affordable, reliable natural gas service in isolated areas. With a Just Energy natural gas plan, you’ll get access to fixed rate plans, green energy options, and unparalleled service. Read on to learn more about why Just Energy is the best natural gas provider in British Columbia.
BC residents have the power to choose their natural gas provider
Did you know that as a BC resident, you can choose your own natural gas provider? British Columbia governs the natural gas and electricity markets separately. The natural gas market has been deregulated, or open to competing companies, since the mid-2000s, while the electricity market remains regulated. Whether you’re moving to British Columbia or have been a resident for years, you can choose your natural gas provider and switch to a new one anytime. Here are a few other things to know:
- The regulated gas utility for your area will continue to deliver your gas when you switch to Just Energy.
- Deregulated energy breaks your natural gas bill into two parts: supply and delivery.
- Supply charges come from Just Energy and account for the amount of natural gas you use each month.
- Delivery charges come from your utility and cover transportation and delivery costs.
- Even though your bill is divided into separate charges, you still only need to pay Just Energy.
How do I switch?
Did you know that regulated gas utilities don’t have to provide fixed rates? Variable natural gas rates through your utility can change as many as four times per year. Utilities can also add extra charges to your bill as needed. If you’re ready for more predictability and simpler budgeting, it’s time for a change. Get fixed rates and more stability with Just Energy. Follow these steps when you’re ready to switch, and get uninterrupted service throughout the process:
