You and I could be saving more money this winter in terms of our energy bills.


SaskEnergy has filed an application with the Saskatchewan Rate Review Panel for a new commodity rate of 6 dollars and 93 cents per Gigajoule, effective November 1st.

Dave Burdeniuk, the Manager of Communications, says with the weather coming out of this past winter and spring meant natural gas prices were lower and looking ahead to this winter, it's expected to be milder so prices are low as well.

If approved, the commodity rate would decrease from 7.17$ per Gigajoule to 6.93$, effective November 1st.

The 2.3 percent decrease will result in savings of twenty-six dollars per year for the average residential customer.
