Frequently Asked Questions
What is the fixed price for the 2020/2021 heating season?
The Fixed Price Option Gas Supply Charge price will be $0.7146 per therm.
Will the fixed price represent the entire amount on my monthly gas bill?
No. The fixed price option only affects the Gas Supply Charge on your bill.
If I didn’t enroll in the Fixed Price Option what would my Gas Supply Charge price be this winter?
As of November 1, 2020, the Gas Supply Charge price for the winter is $0.6946 per therm. This price may increase or decrease as the market price of natural gas fluctuates. Price fluctuations are market-driven and it’s difficult for Eversource to predict what those market conditions or prices will be.
Can I drop out of the Fixed Price Option program at any time during the winter?
No. If you enroll in the Fixed Price Option, you will remain in the program for the entire winter heating season (November 1, 2020 through April 30, 2021).
What happens to my gas bill after April 30, 2021?
Customers on the Fixed Price Option will automatically be placed back on the standard Eversource gas supply pricing for the summer period.
In the Fall of 2021, Eversource will send a reminder message about your enrollment in the Fixed Price Option. At that time, if no action is taken you will receive the Fixed Price Option for the 2020 winter heating season. You also have the option of de-enrolling from the Fixed Price Option at that time.
If I am enrolled in the Fixed Price Option and I move, do I get to keep the rate at my new home?
You are able to carry that rate with you to your new home as long as you move within Eversource's Eastern Massachusetts gas service area.
