You can change from your utility’s supply service to a new retail natural gas supplier or from one retail natural gas supplier to another. In either case, only the gas supplier you choose may switch your service. NEW: Important information about new retail supply offer rules for energy assistance recipients!
Here’s how it works:
The utility, however, is not required to process more than two enrollments and two drops per customer per bill cycle. While generally you can change suppliers for the next month, that isn’t always the case for drop requests made within 9 days of the end of the month.
You will receive a notice of your enrollment from both your utility and your new retail natural gas supplier before the switch occurs. These notices will confirm your selection of your new retail natural gas supplier and the date on which your service will switch, and summarize the new supply option you selected with your new retail natural gas supplier.
If these two notices do not match, or if you did not sign up for service with the named retail natural gas supplier, you should contact the retail gas supplier immediately to remedy this issue.
If you leave a retail natural gas supplier without selecting a new one, you will be returned to utility-provided supply until you choose a new retail gas supplier. You always have the ability to return to the utility for gas supply.
