Natural Gas Fixed-term Rate Indications


On Monday, February 3, City Council voted to eliminate G-11 (fixed-term rate), G-12 (custom rate), and G-4 (direct access).  The termination of those rates and the associated rule changes will be effective March 1, 2014.  Technically, customers have until that time to lock in a rate, after that time all customers will be charged a monthly market pass-through commodity rate (the G-3 rate that they are all on now).  The last indicative fixed-term rate will be generated on February 19, 2014. 


These rates include a risk premium which converts the product from a fixed price for a fixed volume to a fixed price for a variable volume.

The last day to lock in a fixed-term rate with a March 1, 2014 start date is 12:00 noon on February 25, 2014.
