On October 31, 2023, National Fuel Gas Distribution Corporation filed a request with the New York State Public Service Commission (the Commission) that if approved would increase the bill of the average residential customer on the budget plan by approximately $11.31, to $93.98 per month, assuming normal weather.
National Fuel is proud of our long-standing record of keeping prices affordable, resulting in some of the lowest utility delivery rates in the entire Northeast U.S. Careful planning and cost management, as well as our proximity to low-cost natural gas supplies being produced in the Appalachian region of Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia, have allowed us to hold base delivery rates stable for nearly seven years. In fact, Western New York customer bills have actually decreased since 2008, as shown in the chart below.
The increase will be applied to the Delivery Service Charge portion of the bill and, if approved, will go into effect on or about October 1, 2024, assuming the typical Commission review period, which typically takes about 11 months and will include public comment hearings, to be scheduled by the Commission. Until then, National Fuel’s customer delivery rates will continue unchanged.
Customers who are having difficulty paying bills should call us at 1-800-365-3234 to discuss available payment plans and assistance programs. Nearly $1,400 in funds may be available for each eligible customer.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our rate request.
