The city’s current gas aggregation program supplier is IGS Energy, and the contract establishes a fixed rate of $5.25/Mcf for four years. This rate is effective for the October 2022 through September 2026 meter reads, and the city's program has no early termination fee.
All city residents are eligible to enroll in the city’s gas aggregation program unless they are already in an agreement with another gas supplier or are otherwise unqualified (i.e., behind on bills, in the PIPP program, or using over 500 Mcf of gas per year). If you have already contracted with another supplier for gas service, but are interested in switching to the city’s program, you would first have to exit your current supplier’s agreement in order to be eligible to enroll. For those considering the switch, we recommend first reviewing your current gas supplier agreement to be aware of any opt-out or early termination fees that may apply.
As the initial enrollment period for the city's gas aggregation program contract has elapsed, IGS Energy does have the authority to determine whether they are able to accept new participants at this point. Those interested in joining the city's program may contact IGS Energy directly at 1-877-353-0162 to inquire about enrollment. Customer enrollment and account management is handled by IGS Energy, not the city.
Though factors such as inflation, government policies, and conflict in eastern Europe have driven an increase in natural gas prices, the city's new rate compares favorably to offers residents can find on their own in the current market. Our gas aggregation program is geared towards providing another option for city residents to consider in their efforts to manage their energy costs amidst difficult economic conditions. The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) provides a list of other publicly available supply offers on their website, energychoice.ohio.gov. We recommend that anyone considering these alternate supply offers be aware of any early termination fees, fixed monthly charges, or automatic renewal provisions that may apply.
