FEES, RULES & CONTRACTS

We do have a BUDGET PLAN that allows you to average out your monthly costs. The only time we can sign you up is in the spring. The deadline to join is JUNE 5 each year. Forms will be included in upcoming bills or download from here.

Payment Methods

  • In Office with debit, cheque or cash
  • Mail in cheque
  • Online Banking

We do not offer automatic withdrawal at this time.

You can sign up for Equal Monthly Billing. With the same amount being billed each month, you can have your bank set up automatic bill payments from your account or you can leave post-dated cheques at the office.

The deadline for anyone interested in having new gas services installed this year is August 1. If you have not been into our office and requested a quote, or if you have received a quote, but have not signed a gas contract, please contact our office immediately to advise us of the status of the new service. Services will be installed on a first-come, first-served basis, so the sooner we have your information and payment, the sooner your new gas service will be installed.

Please book new and secondary services early. Do not wait until fall, as we do not guarantee service after September 15.
