The Public Utilities Board approved the application of Centra Gas Manitoba Inc. (Centra) to decrease the current primary gas rate from $0.0910/m3 to $0.0863/m3 effective February 1, 2020. Primary gas is sold on a cost recovery basis without markup by Centra to Manitoba customers.

The new rate is projected to decrease the bill for a typical residential customer by approximately 1.8% or $10/year. Primary gas rates will be reviewed again May 1, 2020.

Primary gas rates for customers that have signed fixed-term fixed-price contracts, with either Centra or a private broker, are not affected.

The Board is an impartial tribunal and regulator, at arm’s length from government, that acts in the public interest.
