The delivery portion of your electric and gas bill covers the cost of getting the applicable services to you. For electric service, this includes the building and maintaining power lines, meters, billing systems, etc. that get the electricity from where it is generated to your home or business. Similarly, for gas, this includes the building and maintenance of the pipelines, meters, and billing systems used to get gas to your home. If you see a separate line item on page one of your bill for delivery, it is likely that you have a third party providing the generation of your electricity or procurement of your gas. Although you always pay for delivery, when a third party is present, these charges are separated out.
