METER NUMBER This is the number assigned to your meter in the MTNG billing system
SERVICE PERIOD-FROM First day of usage for the current billing cycle.
SERVICE PERIOD-TO This is the date your gas meter was read. The meter will not be read on the same day each month. Readings will be taken approximately 25-35 days apart.

METER READING-CURRENT This is the reading that was taken on the date listed as SERVICE PERIOD - TO. This reading is in ccf, or hundred cubic feet. To learn more about how to read your own gas meter, see our Billing Page.
READING DIFFERENCE The amount used is determined by simply subtracting the previous reading from the current reading.
PRESSURE FACTOR A factor that the reading must be multiplied by to arrive at the actual CCF usage.
GAS USED (CCF) The result of multiplying the READING DIFFERENCE * PRESSURE FACTOR. A CCF is 100 cubic feet, a measurement of the volume of natural gas usage recorded by the meter.
BTU FACTOR A factor that converts CCF units to energy units in Therms, based on the BTU of the natural gas delivered. BTU factors can vary each month.
NUMBER OF THERMS USED 1 Therm = 100,000 BTU; the result of multiplying the CCF volume of natural gas used time the BTU factor. Therms are the MTNG billing units.
Gas Usage History
GAS USAGE HISTORY This section of the bill shows the past thirteen (13) months' usage in Therms.
THERMS The number of Therms billed during the specified period. 1 Therm = 100,000 BTU; the result of multiplying the CCF volume of natural gas used time the BTU factor. Therms are the MTNG billing units.
