Alert – Significant Utility Rate Increase as of early 2022.
The utilities in each service area are required to offer customers an electricity and natural gas supply service and rate if they have not elected to sign a contract with a licensed third-party supplier. Prior to December 2021 the rates offered were reasonable and on average one cent higher than third-party supplier rates. However, as of December 2021 and over the past few months’ meter read date, the rates have significantly increased by on average 40%. The industry has not seen this much volatility since 2002. Rates today are at 14-year highs. The utility rates when compared to current third-party supplier rates are on average three cents higher.
We recommend you look at your most recent energy invoice to determine if the electricity and/or natural gas rates have been affected by these increases in rates.

The Chamber of Commerce Energy Purchasing Cooperative program provides you with an option to help seek pricing that provides savings when compared to the utility rates and offers you long-term budget stability.
