How to read Leading Edge Energy’s Natural Gas Invoice & Usage Summary
Learn how to read your monthly natural gas invoice verification report so you can manage your costs
Leading Edge Energy sends our commercial and industrial (C&I) market customers a monthly Natural Gas Invoice and Usage Summary via email. This report contains key information such as monthly and daily usage and costs which will help customers manage and control how they consume their gas allocation as well as how they can plan their budget.
Annual Contracted Quantity (ACQ)
The agreed maximum volume of gas the network must deliver.
Maximum Daily Quantity (MDQ)
The agreed maximum quantity of Natural Gas a customer is entitled to each day before being subject to Energy Overrun Charges.
Monthly Billing Summary
Displays the breakdown of monthly Natural Gas charges by category for the last 12 months.
Energy Overrun Charges
These are charges the customer is required to pay if consumption exceeds the contracted Maximum Daily Quantity (MDQ).
Daily Usage Summary
Displays daily Natural Gas usage over the billing period with Energy Overrun Charges highlighted.
Daily Allowance Usage
These are days on which natural gas usage has exceeded the Maximum Daily Quantity (MDQ) and may therefore subject the customer to Energy Overrun Charges.
Annual Cumulative VS. Monthly Contracted Cumulative
This graph displays how the customer’s monthly Natural Gas usage is accumulating against the Annual Contracted Quantity. This is shown in gigajoules (GJ).
The volume of Natural Gas used by the customer that exceeds the contracted Maximum Daily Quantity (MDQ).
Actual Cumulative Usage
This is the actual volume of Natural Gas consumed by the customer each month, cumulatively, not including the Usage Overrun for the month.
Contracted Minimum Volume
The smallest volume of Natural Gas the customer should consume monthly. Using less than this agreed-upon amount may lead to “take-or-pay” charges.
