If, for whatever reason, you don’t sign up with an independent energy supplier, North Shore Gas will continue to provide you “default” variable rate plan. The rates for this plan change quarterly based on changes in the energy market. You can find the current rate below. The rate below is your “Price to Compare.” 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 natural gas rates Currently, the natural gas rate for default service is 2.4 cents per therm for residential customers and commercial customers. North Shore Gas customers can shop for natural gas plans from independent suppliers to see if they can find one that’s right for them.
These rates include only the cost of producing the electricity, not the cost of delivering the electricity to you. The delivery costs will remain the same no matter who supplies your electricity.
