ONG monthly bills on the increase following 2021 winter storm

Remember the winter storm from February 2021? If you have forgotten, your future gas bills will remind you.

Oklahoma Natural Gas customers will soon begin to pay a touch more on their monthly bills to help cover the cost of the winter storm.

In January, the Oklahoma Corporation Commission approved ONG’s plan to help recover $1.3 billion.
The plan will increase the average customer’s monthly bill by 7.82 cents over the next 25 years which adds up to more than $2,000.

In an email sent out to customers, ONG says the average residential customer will see a monthly charge between just over $6 to $10 a month, based on their annual natural gas usage.

Customers, who use less than than 50 dekatherms of gas each year, will pay $6.33 a month. Customers, who use 50 dekatherms or more of gas each year, will pay $10.04.

Low-income customers will pay $0.

“We are proud to have served you as safely and reliably as possible during those challenging times,” a spokesperson said via email. “By purchasing natural gas to keep gas flowing to our customers’ homes and businesses, we made your safety our top priority.”

The charge will appear as a “Winter Event Cost Recovery” line item on your bill beginning August 30, 2022.
