The enrollment period for the 2016-2017 plan is September 1, 2016 through October 21, 2016.
The Voluntary Fixed-Price (VFP) plan is an optional plan which customers may choose that is designed to lock in the per unit cost of gas for the twelve billing months of November 2016 through October 2017 for participants in the plan. The enrollment period for the 2016-2017 plan is September 1, 2016 through October 21, 2016. Enrollment is limited and will be taken on a first come, first served basis.
Enrollment for the plan year begins with the November 2016 bill through the October 2017 bill. Once you have enrolled, you cannot be removed until the plan ends in October 2017.
Knowing the per unit cost of gas for each month will allow customers to budget for gas costs each month with greater accuracy. Gas costs are the most unpredictable part of the bill and this plan effectively eliminates the unpredictability for that part of the bill.
It depends on which way gas prices go over the 12 months. If they are higher than what was locked in, then you could save money; but, if they are lower than the prices locked in, then it may cost more money over the 12 months. This program does not in any way guarantee that you will have lower gas costs. It does guarantee that you will know upfront what those costs will be on a per unit basis.
No. The Voluntary Fixed-Price (VFP) plan is available only to customers who have not opted out of the Temperature Adjustment Clause (TAC). This is because both the VFP and the Temperature Adjustment are designed to take the unpredictability out of your natural gas bill. It seems natural that the two go hand in hand. If you previously opted out of the TAC but now want to participate in VFP you may choose to opt back in to the TAC.
That is entirely your decision. If you want to pay the same cost per dekatherm for the 12-month period, and you can accept that you may or may not have lower gas costs than you would otherwise, the Voluntary Fixed-Price plan could be for you.
Oklahoma Natural Gas understands the impact of fluctuating energy costs on small businesses so we requested and received approval to open the Voluntary Fixed-Price plan up to small commercial, industrial, school and hospital customers that use less than 150 Dekatherms per year.
When our service technicians are at your home or business, you can help protect your animals and our employees by keeping your pets in a safe area away from the natural gas meters and appliances.
Now you can open your bill with just the click of a mouse. By enrolling in our Paperless Billing Program, you’ll receive your monthly billing statement online instead of in the mail.
