Household gas option

JamieApril 6, 2006

Hi, this is my first post to your board; I'm usually in Home Dec.

I'm pretty good at shopping around for phone and cable rates, but this is a new one on me.

I received a an offer today from IGS Energy. They want to sell me the gas I use for heating/AC and hot water.

I haven't researched yet. I assume that they offer a fixed rate, where Commonwealth Edison, the big default supplier, floats with the market. I'll have to look at my usage history. What else do I need to know?

Thanks for any insights you can offer.

Find out what other charges they apply to your bill. Frankly, the amount of natural gas I use is almost secondary to the various fees -- basic charges, cost adjustments, environmental surcharges, etc. -- imposed on the account.

You might also check out whether there's a cost to disconnect from Com Ed and go with IGS.

I got a notice from IGS and they said it was cheaper. I looked at my regular gas bill and the introductory price was cheaper from IGS but the regular price was more. What good is that.
