Natural Gas Rates For Some Alberta Consumers Up This Month, Electricity Down

CALGARY - Some Alberta consumers will be paying less for electricity this month but more for natural gas.

Direct Energy Regulated Services says for the month of October its typical customers will pay about 12 per cent less for electric power compared to last month.

Natural gas is a different story.

Direct Energy says a typical customer in southern Alberta will pay about $18 more a month for gas.

People who live in Red Deer and north of the city will pay about $24 more in October compared to September.
