Rates are effective March 15, 2018
Pierre Part Natural Gas rates consist of three components. The Louisiana Public Service Commission regulates all three components.
- The first is the customer charge. The current customer charge for residential customers is $12.84 per month. The current customer charge for small commercial customers is $9.34 per month.
- The second component of the rate is the allowed rate on the volume of gas used. The current rate allowed for residential customers is $.14380 per 10 cubic feet (the volume registered on Pierre Part meters). The current rate allowed for small commercial customers is $.28542 per 10 cubic feet.
- The final component is the purchased gas adjustment (PGA). The PGA is the average cost of the gas on a monthly basis. The items that go into this cost is strictly monitored by the LPSC. The current month’s PGA is $.31719.
To calculate this month’s residential bill, multiply your consumption by (.14380 + .31719), then add $12.84.
A consumption of 48 would equal a bill of $34.97
48 x (.14380 + .31719) + $12.84 = $34.97
