Riders are rates that reflect temporary changes to your bill. They are approved by the Virginia State Corporation Commission, and may be a credit or a debit. Riders on Virginia Natural Gas bill statements include the Weather Normalization Adjustment, the SAVE Plan and the CARE Plan.
The WNA allows for an adjustment on bills to reflect normal winter weather conditions. A bill credit is added in colder-than-normal winter weather conditions and a surcharge is added in warmer-than-normal weather.
The SAVE Plan enhances the reliability of our natural gas delivery system by accelerating the replacement of pipeline infrastructure. It recovers all approved SAVE Plan-related infrastructure replacement costs.
The CARE Plan allows us to implement important conservation initiatives while ensuring that we recover no more or no less than the allowed distribution revenue per customer approved by the State Corporation Commission in our last general rate review.
