Rates are effective April 15, 2018
South Coast Gas rates consist of four components. The Louisiana Public Service Commission regulates all four components.
- The first is the customer charge. The current customer charge for residential customers is $11.52 per month. The current customer charge for small commercial customers is $8.02 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 $.26979 per 10 cubic feet (the volume registered on South Coast meters). The current rate allowed for small commercial customers is $.33040 per 10 cubic feet.
- The third 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 $.66941
- The final component is the customer surcharge. The LPSC allowed us to put a surcharge of $0.52 per bill for a five year period to replace outdated equipment. The surcharge ends in September 2018.
To calculate this month’s residential bill:
Multiply your consumption by (.26979 + .66941), then add $11.52 and $.52.
A consumption of 48 would equal a bill of $57.12.
48 x (.26979 + .66941) + $11.52 + .52 = $57.12.
