STARK COUNTY ANNOUNCES LOW FIXED RATES
FOR NATURAL GAS AGGREGATION PROGRAM
Canton, Ohio – Stark County officials announced that they have established fixed rates for members in the County’s Natural Gas Aggregation Program supplied by IGS Energy. Residents in the Dominion East Ohio (Dominion) service territory will pay a low fixed rate of $4.645 per Mcf for all gas consumed during the billing cycle months of November 2014 through and October 2015. Similarly, residents in the Columbia Gas of Ohio (Columbia) service territory will pay a rate of $0.5165 per Ccf for all gas consumed during the billing cycle months November 2014 through October 2015.
Residents and businesses should carefully read their letter from IGS Energy. There are two similar but distinct versions of the letters. Residents who are currently in the program or who receive their gas supply from the local utility will receive an “opt-out” letter. If they wish to remain in the program or be added to the program, they should simply do nothing and they will automatically receive the new low rate. A second version of the letter will be sent to residents who have already selected a supplier. These account holders would need to contact IGS Energy to receive the County’s natural gas offer.
Doug Austin, Executive Vice President of IGS Energy, said, “IGS Energy is pleased to continue serving residents of Stark County. Residents who are served by another supplier may obtain the same low rate by calling IGS Energy at 1-800-280-4474.” Further, residents served by other suppliers are encouraged to review the terms and conditions of their current supplier agreement before enrolling as an early termination fee may apply. New customers to the program must be in good standing and cannot be part of the utility’s Percentage of Income Payment Program (PIPP).
The County’s program is available to residents and small commercial natural gas users in the 17 unincorporated townships across Stark County. For more information or to enroll, please call IGS Energy at 1-800-280-4474.
