UGI must remain neutral regarding your supplier selection. We cannot provide prices or recommendations on suppliers. We can only tell you if they are approved to sell electricity to you. You must make your own choice of supplier.
Make a list of the questions you have for suppliers before you contact them. Make sure the prices suppliers quote you in ccf (one hundred cubic feet of natural gas) for a true “apples to apples” comparison or in kwh (kilowatt hours of electricity) . Write down the information so that you can compare offers. Be sure all of your questions are answered.
It’s really up to you. You may choose the supplier by lowest price or based on other service features or options. When comparing prices, be sure you have UGI’s current Price to Compare.
For you to save money, a supplier’s price must be lower than UGI’s price to compare. To calculate how much money you might save, subtract the supplier’s price per ccf from UGI’s price and multiply the difference by the average ccf you use each month. For electric, do the same calculation with kwh instead of ccf. This will give you an idea of your potential monthly savings. Be aware, however, that natural gas and electric prices fluctuate, so the amount of your total savings might vary over time.
In order to change or cancel your current supplier, you must first contact that supplier directly and make sure you are able to cancel (based on your contract with them). If you are eligible to cancel, and you do so, you will automatically revert back to UGI until you choose another supplier.
The distribution charge includes all of the costs UGI incurs to own, operate and maintain its pipeline systems, which deliver natural gas to customers’ homes. The distribution charge also includes the costs associated with providing customer and emergency response services.
The commodity charge reflects the actual cost of the natural gas a customer consumes. All costs for the gas customers consume is passed along to them with no mark-up by UGI. In other words, UGI purchases the natural gas supply from producers and re-sells it to the customer at the same price. This is the price to compare with suppliers. UGI makes no profit on the sale of the natural gas customers consume, and consumers have the right to choose the company that generates their natural gas.
