The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission has approved a gas cost rate increase for Valley Energy’s natural gas customers in Pennsylvania. The PUC approved the new gas cost rate (GCR) of $0.82047 per Ccf on October 18, an increase from the previous year’s GCR of $0.41748 per Ccf. The new rate will take effect Nov. 1. The gas cost rate, one of the three main components on a customer’s natural gas bill, is a direct pass-through charge without any markup that is adjusted annually for the utility’s Pennsylvania customers. Please see Valley Energy’s Release for more information.
For customers who are 62 years of age or older, quarterly billing is offered as an alternative to monthly billing. This option is available only to New York customers with an average annual bill of $150.00 or less.
