If you like to shop and compare for the best price, the
Customer Choice program is for you. Through the Choice program, Columbia Gas of
Kentucky customers can decide who supplies the natural gas for their home or
Your monthly bill consists of two primary components –
charges for delivery and charges for the gas supply. The delivery charge covers
the costs to physically deliver the natural gas to your home or business each
month and provide services like 24-hour emergency service.
The gas supply charge is the cost of the natural gas itself. Columbia
Gas of Kentucky buys gas on your behalf and sells it to you at the same price.
We do not mark-up the price of gas or make a profit on it. Natural gas
marketers may offer flexible pricing options and lower natural gas supply
But that does not mean Columbia Gas is losing your business. We
will still deliver you gas to your home or business and provide other services
such as 24-hour emergency service and billing.
If you choose to participate in the Customer Choice program, you
will also receive:
- Reliable supply of natural gas - If, for any reason, your
marketer fails to secure enough natural gas supplies for all of its
contracted customers, Columbia Gas of Kentucky will step in and supply
your natural gas without any interruption in service to you.
- One bill - You will continue to receive just one bill from
Columbia Gas that includes Columbia's
delivery charges and your marketer's charges for the natural gas.
Your monthly bill will indicate the marketer you have chosen to supply
your natural gas.
Taking part in the Customer Choice program is completely
voluntary and costs you nothing. However, read your marketer's contract
carefully to determine what you are agreeing to. Once a contract is signed, the
terms must be fulfilled before you are allowed to switch to another marketer or
back to Columbia Gas.
Before a natural gas marketer can participate in the Choice
program, they must first pass strict standards. More information is available
from the marketers currently approved to participate in the Columbia Gas of
Kentucky Customer Choice program listed below. Please note that not all
marketers advertise their current rates online -- you might need to call for
current rate information.
