CARBON PRICING AND PROPANE
The Government of Canada has introduced carbon pricing as a way to address climate change. Provinces and territories must implement a carbon price either in the form of carbon tax or a carbon cap-and-trade system, which applies to the purchase or use of fuels such as gasoline, propane, natural gas, and heating fuel unless a specific exemption applies.
HOW DOES THIS IMPACT YOU AND YOUR PROPANE?
To learn more about the federal carbon pricing program and the impact in your province or territory, visit the Government of Canada’s website.
Large business customers who may be eligible for an exemption from the federal carbon charge must file for exemption with the federal government and submit all required documentation to Superior Propane at email@example.com.
All fuel distributors including Superior Propane are required to collect the carbon fuel charge from consumers on fuel sales. All carbon fuel charges collected are submitted directly to the federal government.
As always, Superior gives you full visibility of the government fees associated with the delivery of your propane. We display the carbon price as a separate line item on your delivery ticket, invoice, and/or statement.
Since the price you pay for carbon is based on the volume of propane you consume, upgrading your home will improve your energy efficiency, reduce your carbon footprint and save you money. Simple steps you can take include:
- Weather-strip doors and windows
- Seal leaks with caulking
- Clean gutters regularly
- Let the natural sunlight help heat your home by opening curtains during the day and closing them when it gets dark
- Don’t waste energy while you sleep —automate your thermostat to lower the temperature to between 18 and 20°C overnight
- Track your propane consumption and energy savings every month in mySUPERIOR
