Additional Details:
There is a minimum monthly charge equal to the Customer Charge that pays for maintaining local systems for natural gas and funds local operational costs. CCF is 100 cubic feet, the standard measurement unit for natural gas. You are charged for the natural gas you use monthly, based on your meter reading. The purchased gas adjustment is needed to reflect the costs of natural gas from our wholesale supplier.

Natural gas prices rise and fall based on supply and demand issues. When the cost of natural gas increases, NPU reflects this increase with an adjustment per cubic foot of natural gas that you use.
