The City of Barberton Announces Fixed Rate for Natural Gas Aggregation Program
City of Barberton, Ohio (September 2021)
Gas Aggregation Program
Barberton City officials would like to announce they have once again chosen Constellation (Constellation New Energy – Gas Division, LLC) as the supplier for the City’s Natural Gas Aggregation Program. The new program will run through the November 2025 bill cycle. A rate of $3.31 per Mcf has been set for gas consumed for the December 2021 through November 2025 bill cycles. Residents and small commercial customers can expect a letter from Constellation to arrive on or about October 5th. The letter will explain the rate, terms and conditions of the offer.
Mayor Bill Judge said, "We are pleased to have been able to secure this low rate for our residents and businesses. The fixed-rate is currently lower than the alternative rate from the local utility, and it will give them price protection and budget stability as we move into the winter months. And, as before, our program has no early termination fee.”
Letters from Constellation
Andrew Burns, Govt. Agg Manager of Independent Energy Consultants, said, “Residents and businesses should carefully read their letter from Constellation.” Burns added, Residents who are currently in the program will receive an opt-out letter letter and will not need to take any action to remain in the program. Anyone who has not chosen a supplier and receives their gas supply from Dominion Energy Ohio will also receive an “opt-out” letter. If they wish to be added to the program they should simply do nothing and they will automatically receive the new rate.”
Residents Not Currently Participating
Any resident or small business that is not participating in the aggregation program and is currently served by another supplier may obtain the same low rate by calling Constellation at 1-844-467-4294, or by visiting a dedicated website www.constellation.com/oh-barberton. Residents served by other suppliers are encouraged to review the terms and conditions of their current supplier agreement before enrolling. New customers to the program must be in good standing and cannot be part of the utility’s Percentage of Income Payment Program (PIPP).
The City is pleased to have made this program possible but asks that you do not call the City offices. They are not equipped to handle a large volume of calls. Residents should contact Constellation toll free at 1-844-467-4294 if they have any questions.
