UGI is dropping its price in Sept.
Great news for natural gas customers: UGI said Friday its rate will decrease beginning Sunday.
The fuel portion of customers’ bill will drop by 1.93%, according to a news release. That means the bill for a typical residential customer will fall from $68.75 per month to $67.42 per month.
“This change reflects actual and projected gas costs related to wholesale supply,” said Chris Brown, UGI vice president and general manager of rates and supply.
By law, utilities are required to pass the cost of the natural gas they buy to customers without any markup.
Despite this decrease, UGI said, some customers may have difficulty paying their utility bill. The company offers budget billing, as well as multiple free payment options to customers who enroll in UGI’s online bill payment program, or the autodeduction program to assist customers in managing bill payments. Additionally, customers on a fixed income can contact the company at 800-844-9276 to learn if they are eligible for energy assistance.
