Take control of winter heating bills

| August 7, 2017

COLUMBUS – Columbia Gas of Ohio encourages customers to sign up for the 2017-2018 budget payment plan during the month of August. The budget payment plan provides customers with an alternative payment option by spreading winter heating costs throughout a full year.

“It is important that we provide our customers with options for managing their bill,” said Columbia Gas of Ohio President Dan Creekmur. “The Budget Payment Plan is part of our commitment to work with the customers we serve.”

Once enrolled, a customer will pay the “budget payment” amount listed on their monthly bill for a 12 month period. Customers will know how much they can expect to pay each month for their natural gas bill. This consistent charge eliminates the guess work when it comes to budgeting for monthly finances and avoids increased heating costs during the winter season. Accounts are reviewed and adjusted, if needed, for accuracy in January, August and October.

Each customer’s budget payment plan amount is calculated on an individual basis by looking at their previous usage, 30-year normal weather and the present and estimated cost of natural gas.

Customers can sign-up for the plan by paying the “budget payment” amount listed on their August bill, visiting Columbia Gas online at online at ColumbiaGasOhio.com/Budget, or by calling 1-800-344-4077.

The budget payment plan is free and open to all Columbia Gas of Ohio customers.
