If you don’t sign up with an independent energy supplier, North Shore Gas will continue to provide you “default” variable rate plan, which is your “Price to Compare”. The rates for this plan change quarterly based on changes in the energy market. You can use it to make an apples-to-apples comparison between your utility‘s plan and those offered by independent energy suppliers. If another supplier’s price per therm is lower than the “Price to Compare,” you can save the difference by switching to that supplier.
Customers on the default plan will likely pay a higher and less predictable energy rate than those who sign up for a plan with an independent energy supplier. North Shore Gas customers can shop for natural gas plans by entering their ZIP code above.
