Enbridge Gas Distribution Rate Adjustment Update

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/22/14 -- Enbridge Gas Distribution Inc., a regulated natural gas distribution utility, has received a decision from the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) regarding its April 1, 2014 rate change in which the OEB approved rates on an interim basis in March pending a review.

Today, the OEB directed Enbridge to spread the costs associated with Ontario's coldest winter in 37 years over an extended period, from 12 to 27 months.

"We support the decision to ease the impact of the extremely cold winter on our customers," said Malini Giridhar, Vice President, Enbridge Gas Distribution. "We will be implementing revised rates in the next quarterly rate adjustment."

"Enbridge does not earn a profit on the price of natural gas," she added. "Any difference between forecast costs and actual prices is either collected from or returned to customers through a Cost Adjustment."

Natural gas remains cheaper than 10 years ago and is also the most economical choice for home and water heating in Ontario, costing less than half as much as alternative fuels. Natural gas is about 60 per cent less expensive than electricity and 64 per cent less expensive than oil.(i)
