Swan River Natural Gas Co-op along with the other Co-ops in the Federation of Alberta Gas Co-ops, are shareholders in Gas Alberta Inc., and we purchase our gas volumes exclusively from Gas Alberta. Swan River Natural Gas applies an additional $1.85 per GJ to the cost of gas provided by Gas Alberta to cover the cost of delivery, insurance, maintenance to pipeline facilities and services such as line locating and emergency response. In addition, a monthly fixed charge of $26.75 and a system improvement rider of $5.50 is charged monthly to help with these costs.
Monthly bills are sent out the first week of each month and are due by the last day of the same month. Our billing runs one month behind therefore when receiving a bill you are actually paying for the previous month's gas. The bill clearly shows the gas volumes, charges for gas, distribution as well as operating charges. Should you have any concerns or problems with your natural gas bill do not hesitate to contact our office and we will address your concerns.
The due date for each monthly gas billing is the last day of the month. A penalty charge of 2% is charge on any overdue amounts. A letter is sent to the address on file for overdue accounts in arrears 90 days or greater. If an arrangement for payment or payment in full is not made, a door notice is issued and the gas service is disconnected. A charge of $300.00 plus any amount owing will be paid in full prior to reconnection of gas services.
