Cuyahoga Falls locks in natural gas rate

CUYAHOGA FALLS — Cuyahoga Falls again has chosen IGS Energy as its natural gas supplier beginning with the April billing period through the June billing period.

Due to the fluctuation of prices in the natural gas market, the city has elected to go with a fixed price contract for the short term, according to city officials. A fixed rate of $5.18 per thousand cubic feet (mcf) for three months has been locked in for those residents currently enrolled with the city’s aggregation program.

Current participants will be automatically re-enrolled unless they elect not to participate. A letter will be mailed out stating the new rate and providing the option to opt out, and there is no cancellation fee to leave the aggregation. Those coming off other contracts or interested in joining the city’s program may opt in by calling IGS directly at 800-280-4474.

The aggregation program is a voluntary program. All residents may review the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio’s “Apples to Apples” comparison website at www.energychoice.ohio.gov for current offers for Dominion East Ohio customers. Fixed, variable and quarterly options are available; however, residents are urged to carefully review all terms and conditions, including cancellation fees, according to city officials.

For additional information regarding the city’s aggregation program, call the Service Director’s office at 330-971-8240.
