Frequently Asked Questions:
If you have already enrolled with NSTAR’s Gas Fixed Price Option, here are some answers to your frequently asked questions.
What is the fixed price for the 2012/2013 heating season?
The 2012/2013 Fixed Price Option Gas Supply Charge price will be $0.5932 per therm.
Will the fixed price represent the entire amount on my monthly gas bill?
No. This fixed price option will only affect 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, 2012, the Gas Supply Charge price for the winter is $0.5732 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 NSTAR Gas 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, 2012 through April 30, 2013).
What happens to my gas bill after April 30, 2013?
Customers on the Fixed Price Option will automatically be placed back on the regular, standard NSTAR Gas pricing on May 1, 2013. In the fall of 2013, NSTAR will send a reminder message of enrollment. At that time, you may continue to participate in next winter’s Fixed Price Option program or de-enroll from the program. If no action is taken, you will continue on the Fixed Price Option program next winter.
If I am enrolled in the Fixed Price Option program and I move, do I get to keep the rate at my new home?
Yes. You will be able to carry that rate with you to your new home as long as you move within the NSTAR Gas service area.
