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.
1307f Annual Gas Cost Filing
Notice of Proposed Purchased Gas Cost Rate Changes
Each March, all natural gas distribution companies in southwestern Pennslyvania, including Peoples, are requred to provide the Public Utility Commission and customers with an estimate of what the anticipated cost of the natural gas commodity will be on October 1st of that same year.
These cost projections will be examined by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission. Many different, rapidly changes factors will affect the cost of the natural gas commodity between now and this fall. It is highly unlikely that you will see these exact rates on October 1st. In the meantime, Peoples will continue to adjust the purchased gas cost portion of your bill on a quarterly basis to true up any variations in the actual cost of the natural gas we purchased and the amount you paid. Here are the bill inserts that explain this annual filing:
- Notice of Proposed Purchased Gas Cost Rate Changes - Peoples Gas (Formerly Peoples TWP): March 2021
- Notice of Proposed Purchased Gas Cost Rate Changes - Peoples Natural Gas and Equitable: March 2021
Here are the annual filing documents:
- Peoples 2021 PGC Pre-Filing
- Peoples 2021 PGC Filing
- Peoples Gas 2021 PGC Pre-Filing
- Peoples Gas 2021 PGC Filing
