How are business gas bills calculated?

Your bill should include a business gas price breakdown that explains the cost of each aspect of the amount that you are being charged.

Commercial gas bills are calculated using the following method:

  • Gas usage is calculated by subtracting the previous reading from your current reading to give your consumption over the given billing period
  • Your usage is then multiplied by 2.83 to convert your usage from cubic feet to cubic meters
  • This number is the multiplied by the calorific value of the gas. The calorific value of gas can change
  • Times this figure by 1.02264 to correct the volume of gas to account for its temperature and pressure
  • Divide the number that you have by 3.6 to convert your usage to kilowatt hours (KwH)
  • Finally, times your usage (the number of KwH) by your unit rate and add the standing charge if you have one.
