What is a Standing Charge?

The standing charge covers the fixed costs of providing your business with a gas supply.

These costs include the distributors cost of transporting gas to your business premises and the meter operators cost of looking after your business gas meter.

In order to transport gas to your business, suppliers are obliged to pay a fee to the National Grid or local distributor that owns the pipes or wire, through which the gas travels.

Your standing charge is a fixed, daily amount.
