Natural Gas and Electricity News

August 21, 2019 

The annual natural gas and electricity meeting will be on Thursday, September 26 at 6:30 pm in The Gathering Room at the Human Services Center, 2 Community Drive. 

It is imperative that you bring your newest gas and electric bills to find out if you have the best rate! 

Arrive early because with the construction, parking has been at a premium. 

Also, and this is not a joke, do not be alarmed if you see young men and women in fatigue uniforms. The Civil Air Patrol meets at the Center at the same time. 

Both natural gas and electricity rates have been going down. Everyone should have NOPEC’s VARIABLE RATE for gas. If you don’t it’s a 99% probability that you’re paying too much. The rate on your August Dominion bill should be no higher than $2.51. 

The rate on your September bill should be no higher than $2.36. 

If you see the letters, SSO, SCO or MVR on your gas bill it’s important that you call NOPEC at 1-855-667-3201 and ask for their variable rate. 

Regarding electricity, if your rate is higher than .0524 cents per KWH call NOPEC at the number above and tell them to put you on their fixed rate of .0524 cents. If you’re with a provider other than NOPEC, be careful, you might have an early termination fee if you switch. 

As we enter the fall you will be bombarded as you are every year with phone calls, mail and even door to door visitors who want you to sign up with them. You do not want their offers!!! As Nancy Reagan used to say, “Just say no!” Dominion Energy SOLUTIONS recently kicked off this mad house with a mailer. We hope you didn’t take the offer. Remember, and this is important, Dominion Energy Solutions sounds like the gas company but they’re not. The gas company is Dominion Energy OHIO! No wonder this whole process is confusing. 

If you have any questions call the Human Services Center at 526-2499.
