What is the Standard Choice Offer program?
Dominion East Ohio arranges for natural gas for customers who have not selected an alternative natural gas supplier by assigning these customers to an alternative natural gas supplier through an auction process approved by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio.
Dominion East Ohio continues to:
- Deliver natural gas to all customers,
- Offer payment plans, such as budget billing, and
- Handle all emergency and customer service calls.
All customers pay the same supply and distribution rate for the delivery of natural gas supplies to their homes and businesses.
For more information on the Standard Choice Offer program please visit the Web site of the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO).
Who is eligible for the Standard Choice Offer?
Customers who are Customer Choice eligible, but have not selected a supplier, will be assigned to a gas supplier with the new Standard Choice Offer rate. Choice ineligible customers will not be included in the program.
Why is Dominion East Ohio changing the way it procures natural gas for its customers?
Dominion East Ohio is transitioning out of the business of procuring gas for its customers, focusing instead on the business of natural gas delivery and customer service, and fostering a choice and competition based market to serve the gas supply needs of its customers.
