Gas Rates and Tariffs


As Peoples has grown over the years, we worked hard to bring the services of multiple companies together, in order to benefit all four of the ‘Peoples Utilities’. While our customer service, our management, and our mission are all the same, you may wonder why the rates are different for “Peoples Natural” customers and “Peoples Gas (Formerly Peoples TWP)” customers.

Our company has four “utilities” under the umbrella of Peoples:

  • Peoples Natural: Equitable Division and Peoples Division
  • Peoples Gas (Formerly Peoples TWP)
  • Peoples Gas – West Virginia
  • Peoples Gas – Kentucky

While all four of these utilities are owned by the same owner, “Peoples Gas (Formerly Peoples TWP)” is a separate utility company from Peoples Natural. Similarly, Peoples Gas – West Virginia and Peoples Gas – Kentucky are also separate utility companies from Peoples Natural. Therefore Peoples Gas (Formerly Peoples TWP) has its own rates and charges approved by the PA Public Utility Commission (PUC).

In July 2017, Peoples made a filing with the state to change Peoples TWP LLC’s name to Peoples Gas Company LLC. We moved forward with this name change, because as our employees came together under one banner of “Peoples,” we hope to show all of our customers—from all four different utilities—that we are one and the same. The state accepted this filing, and moving forward, Peoples TWP will also be referred to as “Peoples.” For Peoples Gas (Formerly Peoples TWP) customers, there will be no change to your bill. The rates and tariffs for Peoples Gas (Formerly Peoples TWP) will remain the same, and you will still be able to find them at the bottom of this page under Peoples Gas (Formerly Peoples TWP).

When Peoples acquired Equitable Gas in 2013, it was agreed that Peoples would operate the former Equitable Gas system as a separate division of Peoples, which means that the Peoples and the Peoples-Equitable Divisions would maintain separate tariffs and rates and charges under the “Peoples Natural” utility, unless otherwise approved by the PUC. Effective October 1, 2015, the PUC approved Peoples' request to charge the same gas cost recovery rates to the customers of both the Peoples and the Peoples-Equitable Divisions. These rates are shown on your gas bill as the Capacity Charge and the Price to Compare (PTC). Other charges on your bill are still determined separately and are different for each division.

Peoples has certified to the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission that this is an accurate electronic representation of the tariffs which are officially filed at the Commission. Users of electronic tariffs should note, however, that such tariffs are not the official documents, and users assume responsibility for reliance upon tariffs in electronic format.
