Bill Calculation Example:

Assume:  A residential account uses 110 units of gas since the last read date and has no other additional charges.  The current heat content is 1.024 and the current gas rate is $0.93.  Here is how the gas usage would be billed (additional charges are added to this amount)...

Usage x BTU content value = 110 x 1.024 = 112.64 therms of gas

Therms x gas rate = 112.64 x $0.93 = $104.76

Add facility charge = $104.76 + $12.00 = $116.76 (the billed gas amount)
