NOPEC GAS PURCHASES CONTINUE TO BE VERY LOW FOR THE SUMMER AND EARLY FALL
NOPEC has been able to continue with very good prices for our member communities in both the Dominion East Ohio area and the Columbia gas area through the Summer and into the early Fall.
In the Dominion East Ohio area our current price is $5.98 /mcf. This price will continue through the meter reading in October.
In the Columbia gas area our current price is $6.15 / mcf ($.615/ccf). This price will continue through the meter reading in September.
Prices have begun to increase and they are higher for late fall and winter then they had been recently. NOPEC will continue to monitor these prices. We do not want to purchase too early if the prices should, once again, decline. We also don’t want to wait too long as we look at the potential of higher prices in the near future.
We will keep you posted as we continue to monitor the gas market.
Remember, that if anyone has specific questions about either gas or electric, it is better to first refer them to our call centers and the call centers have their information and should be able to give them immediate answers to their questions. These numbers are:
