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.
