One hundred cubic feet, a unit of measure for natural gas. One CCF is approximately equivalent to one therm, the unit of measurement for most gas metering and billing systems.
Compressed natural gas.
The cost of the gas per therm. Most marketers combine the cost of the gas with the Transportation Charge, however some marketers do not bundle this charge with the rate. GasKey includes this fee with the rate per therm.
The act of reducing or stopping the supply of natural gas to customers who, in exchange for favorable terms, have agreed to an interruptible natural gas supply. Because of increased demand relative to supply, the cooler winter months are typically referred to as "curtailment season."
Residential customers are never subject to curtailment; in fact, curtailment is used primarily to ensure that all residential customers have a safe and reliable natural gas supply throughout the year.
A regulated assessment from AGL that covers the fixed costs of meters, pipes and maintenance of AGL's gas distribution system.
A regulated charge assessed by AGL to marketers to fund the cost of providing customer education regarding deregulation. Currently this is not being charged.
Known as the Dedicated Design Day Capacity or "premise demand factor". It is the maximum amount of volume of gas dedicated to your use. It is calculated by AGL and is based on the maximum number of therms recorded by your meter on the most demanding day - typically the coldest day- of the year. It is expressed in a decimal number. The average DDDC for a home in metro Atlanta is 1.29 for example.
A unit of measure for heating value, equivalent to 10 therms, used to measure natural gas.
A company responsible for the transportation of natural gas from one point to another. In Georgia’s deregulated natural gas industry, the distributor is separate from the provider: while the provider is responsible for selling you your natural gas and providing you with billing and customer service, the distributor is responsible for transporting the gas to your home or business, for maintaining the pipes that carry the gas, and for connection, disconnection and emergency response in the case of a suspected gas leak. In Georgia, the distributor is Atlanta Gas Light Company.
