Natural Gas Aggregate Program
The City of Barberton Announces Fixed Rate for Natural Gas Aggregation Program
City of Barberton, Ohio
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 October 2021 bill cycle. A rate of $3.22 per Mcf has been set for gas consumed for the November 2019 through October 2021 bill cycles. Residents and small commercial customers can expect a letter from Constellation to arrive sometime in October 2019. The letter will explain the rate, terms and conditions of the offer.
Mayor Bill Judge said, "We are pleased to have been able to strike this low rate for our residents and businesses. The fixed-rate 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
Mark Burns, President of Independent Energy Consultants, said, “Residents and businesses should carefully read their letter from Constellation.” Burns added, “There are two similar but distinct versions of the letters. Residents who are currently in the program or who receive their gas supply from Dominion Energy Ohio will receive an “opt-out” letter.
If they wish to remain in, or be added to, the program, they should simply do nothing and they will automatically receive the new rate. A second similar version of the letter will be sent to residents who have already selected a supplier. These account holders would need to contact Constellation to receive the City’s natural gas 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 844-467-4294, responding via mail as directed in the letter they receive, or by visiting a dedicated website. 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 844-467-4294 or read the FAQs about Natural Gas Aggregate if they have any questions.
