Struthers, OH – (January 12, 2022) – Officials with the City of Struthers have partnered with Constellation NewEnergy, one of the largest retail energy providers in North America, in an effort to help members of its community manage their winter heating bills. Effective February 1, 2022, Constellation NewEnergy will again serve as the community’s preferred natural gas supplier, where consumers will have the opportunity to sign up for a fixed rate that will offer stability in a volatile market.
A fixed rate of $3.84 per thousand cubic feet (Mcf) has been set. The rate will go into effect February 2022 and covers the March 2022 through February 2026 bill cycles. The rate excludes taxes and fees for services provided by the utility.
“We noticed the natural gas rates dropping and decided to lock in at these attractive levels,” said City of Struthers Mayor Cat Cercone Miller. “To protect the community from fluctuating energy prices, we are providing a stable rate through the Constellation NewEnergy program.”
“Our goal was to provide Struthers residents with a competitive energy rate,” said Thomas Bellish, President for Buckeye Energy Brokers. “In working closely with city officials, we’ve identified the best pricing available right now for residents.”
Residents and small businesses who live in incorporated areas in the City of Struthers are eligible to participate in the program, and will receive information via mail describing the offer at the end of the year. Those over 65 can request the senior rate of $3.74/Mcf by calling Constellation NewEnergy directly at 1-800-718-1493. Customers not receiving a letter stating they are automatically included will need to call to enroll in the program.
