What makes up my business gas price?
Business gas prices consist of two elements, wholesale energy costs, and non-energy costs. However, business gas non-energy costs are not as complicated as with electricity prices and are made up of two elements, transportation and metering.
Transportation is the costs to deliver gas through the gas pipelines to the gas meter itself. The price of transportation varies depending on where your business is situated in the country.
Metering is a charge based on the size of the physical meter, which is determined by the ‘max hourly load’. This simply means the volume of gas that the meter can physically sustain and distribute to the relevant business. The higher the maximum load, the higher the metering charges.Get in touch
