The County of Summit, Ohio, Chooses Constellation to Supply Low-Cost Natural Gas Supply to Residents and Small Businesses
BALTIMORE (December 16, 2013) — Constellation, a business unit of Exelon and longtime competitive power and natural gas supplier in Ohio, today announced that it has been selected by the County of Summit, Ohio, to provide residents and small businesses with low-cost natural gas supply following a competitive bidding process under the state’s natural gas choice, governmental aggregation program.
The program area is Bath Township, Boston Township, Copley Township, Coventry Township, Northfield Center Township, Richfield Township, Springfield Township, Twinsburg Township and the City of New Franklin.
"We are delighted to secure such a low rate for our residents and small businesses,” said County of Summit Executive, Russell Pry. “Constellation’s initial fixed rate was lower than any other current, comparable term offer listed on Public Utilities Commission of Ohio comparison charts and will help residents control their natural gas costs."
As a national energy leader with deep roots serving Ohio residential as well as commercial, industrial and governmental customers, we look forward to providing natural gas supply to County of Summit customers and other Ohio governmental aggregation programs,” said Bruce Stewart, chief marketing officer, Constellation. “We offer a range of competitive power and natural gas products for consumers and businesses and pride ourselves on top notch customer service."
Residents and small businesses participating in the County of Summit natural gas program will pay a low fixed rate of $4.38/Mcf for all natural gas supply consumed during the 20-month period from February 2014 through September 2015. After September 2015, pricing will be determined based upon the county’s election to secure a fixed-price rate for the next service period.
Constellation will work with County of Summit officials to notify all eligible customers via letter of the gas supply rate, terms and conditions and their right to opt-out of the program. Residential and small commercial retail customers who choose to opt-out of the aggregation program can do so by notifying Constellation by January 3, 2014. Customers who do not opt-out can leave the program at any time within the 20-month term without penalty. New customers to the program must be in good standing and cannot be part of Dominion East Ohio’s Percentage of Income Payment Program (PIPP).
