How Deregulation Affects Ohio Natural Gas Prices

By now, you’ve most likely heard something about the deregulation of Ohio’s energy markets. But what does deregulation really mean for the average family? The simple answer is that deregulation allows you to compare natural gas prices in Ohio and then choose where your utility company purchases the gas you use to heat your home.

Before deregulation, utility companies were forced to purchase natural gas at whatever the current market prices were. However, since deregulation, consumers are now free to select the gas supplier from whom their utility companies buy their gas.

The bottom line is that you enjoy controlled costs through competitive rates and pricing plans when you choose an experienced natural gas supplier like Shipley Energy. And you still get to stay with your current utility company as it delivers fuel and administers your home’s energy needs.

You Have Options

Shipley Energy gives both new and current customers the option of choosing a pricing plan that matches their energy needs:

  • Fixed price: Fixed pricing locks in a rate that remains stable regardless of seasonal price hikes.
  • Variable price: With variable pricing, you pay the current market price, which can change from month to month.

Fixed Rate Benefits

Shipley Energy’s pricing plan offers some of the best Ohio natural gas rates through a fixed price, delivering long-term controlled costs for homes like yours. Lock in your price and enjoy that your usage costs will remain the same throughout your entire plan, regardless of seasonal increases and other market factors driving up costs.

Natural gas is one of the more stable commodities on the market currently, but it is still subject to seasonal price jumps in the winter and summer. We’ve all seen and felt those increases, cutting deeper into our wallets even when we work hard to keep usage low or spend more on energy-efficient appliances.

After the late winter storms of 2016 and a season of shifting weather, it’s becoming harder to predict what will occur and drive up the cost of producing, transporting or delivering energy to your home. Call us today to enroll in a Fixed Price plan to simplify your costs and budget.
