Monthly Cost

The Monthly Cost bar chart shows the monthly cost ($) of Gas usage for a school. The chart will show costs whether the school has Natural Gas, LPG or both. This enables users to see and compare the overall cost.

It is important to note that Natural Gas invoices are received quarterly, and as a result, monthly reports may show slightly less than actual consumption, both in MJ and in ($).
