Distributor charges are costs related to bringing the energy to your home (natural gas pipelines and/ or electricity wires). These rates are calculated and charged by your distribution company and are the same regardless of the plan you are on or the retailer you are with. They are a combination of fixed and variable components based on your usage. These costs can be up to 60% of your total bill in the winter.
The Federal Carbon Tax is a flow-through charge and as with the distributor charges, will be the same regardless of the plan you are on or the retailer you are with. On April 1, 2023, the Federal Carbon Tax rate will increase from $2.629 to $3.327/GJ.
