Gas Fixed Price Option
Eversource's Fixed Price Option lets you lock in a fixed gas supply price for the winter season - giving you more control over your natural gas bill.
By enrolling you'll pay a guaranteed fixed price per therm for the Gas Supply portion of your bill from November 1, 2018 through April 30, 2019 - avoiding the risk of natural gas prices fluctuating during the winter heating season.
The Fixed Price Option cost of gas will be available in early November after we receive approval from the Mass. Department of Public Utilities.
You can enroll by calling 866-609-6395. You also de-enroll from the Fixed Price Option using the same phone number.
Please note, we will be accepting a limited number of participants on a first-come, first-served basis. If you have multiple accounts, please apply for each one individually.

As of November 1, 2018, the Gas Supply Charge price for the winter is $0.5782 per therm. This price may increase or decrease as the market price of natural gas fluctuates.

Customers on the Fixed Price Option will automatically be placed back on the standard Eversource gas supply pricing for the summer period.
