Cap and Trade Information


Natural Resource Gas Limited is a regulated Utility. We receive direction from the Ontario Energy Board with regard to all rate-setting activities. Under the 2016 Climate Change Act, new Regulations have been issued that pertain to the Cap and Trade Program. This program will affect residential, commercial and industrial consumers in the province of Ontario beginning January 1, 2017. All Natural Gas utilities, including NRG have been directed to purchase GHG allowances on behalf of its customers. The costs to purchase these allowances will be passed on to customers.

The charge for the delivery portion of your bill will be increasing by $0.033945 per cubic meter. This increase, which has been approved by Ontario Energy Board ("OEB") on an interim basis, is to recover the costs associated with the Government of Ontario mandated cap and trade compliance plans. How will the price change impact you? That will depend on the amount of gas that you use. For a typical residential customer who consumes approximately 2,009 cubic meters of gas annually, this price change will cause your annual heating costs to increase by approximately $68 per year or about $5.68 per month on average.

Further information is available from the OEB’s Consumer Relations Centre at 1-877-632-2727 or at the Cap and Trade in Ontario Website

In the coming months, watch for the release of new conservation programs. Links will soon be provided on our website to direct customers to these programs as well as provide helpful tips to conserve energy in your home or business.

Call Before You Dig

Call before you dig

If yard work is on the to-do list, remember: before you dig, you must have all pipelines located by Ontario One Call. A network of hydro, natural gas, phone and cable lines, as well as water and sewer pipes, may lie just under the surface of your property. Sinking a shovel into the ground could result in serious injury, widespread service disruptions and costly repairs. And under Ontario regulations, you could be held liable for all of it.

To arrange to have utility lines located and marked for free, contact Ontario One Call at 1-800-400-2255. Or create an e-ticket online at, at least five full business days before you plan to dig.
