GLENDALE RESIDENTS CONTINUE TO HAVE A CHOICE OF NATURAL GAS
AND ELECTRICITY SUPPLIER
Glendale voters originally approved the aggregation
initiatives for natural gas and electric services in November 2009. Aggregation
programs allow residents and small businesses to select an alternative supplier
to Duke Energy. Since 2009, the Village has provided opt-out programs for both
natural gas and electricity with two and three year terms, respectively. The
current natural gas program will end soon in October and the electricity
program ends during October 2017.
After researching the market, the Village has extended its agreement
for natural gas with Interstate Gas Supply (IGS) for a new two year term. (IGS
is also our supplier for electric). Since
Duke Energy’s gas rate changes every month our new natural gas program will
also set rates on a month-to-month basis.
Aggregation rates may be compared
to the Duke rates by exploring “Finding Your Price-To-Compare” from our
All residents and small businesses should receive a new “opt out” notice for the
natural gas program within the next few weeks unless you are receiving service
from an alternative supplier you have selected on your own.
You may opt-in to
either the natural gas or electricity program at any time without penalty by
calling IGS at 1-800-280-4474. Be
certain to tell them that you are enrolling under the Village of Glendale
aggregation program and confirm that the rates in this message are the same
rates quoted to you. You should also be
aware of your current supplier and whether any penalties will be assessed to
you under your agreement if you decide to opt-in the
Village programs. If you look at your
Duke Energy bill, usually on page 2, you should see a section that indicates
who your current supplier is. If you
have any questions, please feel free to contact the village office at
Our supply rate for electricity remains fixed under contract
with IGS as follows:
Rate $.0576 per kilowatt hour Effective Until October 2017
Questions. If you have
any additional questions concerning either program call the Village office at
771-7200 or our consultant, Eagle Energy, at 251-7283.
If you currently belong to Glendale’s Aggregation program
but down the road you no longer want to participate, then you may leave Glendale’s
Aggregation program at any time without paying a penalty.
Even though Glendale
has an aggregation program, suppliers may still solicit your business by phone
or by mail and suggest that you leave the aggregation program. Beware before you accept a solicitation from
another supplier seeking a long-term contract because it may include a penalty
to leave their program in the future.
