Details for UGI%MIDATLANTIC NEWSPAPER - Ad from 2018-05-17

To Our Customers:
UGI Utilities, Inc. - Gas Division (UGI) has announced that
its purchased gas cost rates will decrease on June 1, 2018.
As a result, the total bill for the typical residential heating,
commercial and industrial retail customer is projected to
decrease by 2.8%, 3.1% and 3.2% respectively on June 1.
In addition, UGI is filing its annual request with the
Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) to establish your
purchased gas cost rates as of December 1, 2018. As a result,
the total bill for the typical residential heating, commercial, and
industrial retail customer is projected to decrease an additional
9.5%, 10.6%, and 10.9%, respectively, on December 1.
Purchased gas cost rates are designed to recover the costs of
natural gas which the Company purchases from the wholesale
supply market. The rate that is determined in the annual
purchased gas cost case will be recalculated to reflect actual
gas costs on a quarterly basis, and may be subject to change if
the recalculated rate differs from the rate that is established in
this case by more than two percent.
Your bill based on the December 1, 2018 rates requested by
UGI may vary based on your usage and rate schedule. The
proposed December 1, 2018 rates would result in a bill for a
typical residential retail heating customer using 60.8 hundred
cubic feet (ccf) per month of $62.76 per month. The bill for a
typical commercial retail customer using 43.9 thousand cubic
feet (Mcf ) per month would be $396.64 per month. The bill for
a typical industrial retail customer using 149.8 Mcf per month
would be $1,314.92 per month.
Customers who purchase their natural gas from a PUC-licensed
Natural Gas Supplier (“NGS”) may be affected by this proposal.
You may examine a copy of the information filed with the
Commission in support of its proposed purchased gas cost
rates in the Company’s offices. To find out your customer
class or how the requested rates may affect your bill you may
contact the Company at 1-800-276-2722.
The proposed rates are subject to examination by the PUC
which shall schedule hearings to determine the proper rate
level to be charged. The Company will have the burden to prove
that the proposed rates are reasonable. After examining the
evidence, the PUC may grant all, some, or none of the request.
You can challenge the Company’s request by (1) filing a formal
complaint, (2) sending a letter to the PUC or (3) testifying at a
public input hearing. If you want a hearing before a judge, you
must file a formal complaint. By filing a formal complaint, you
assure yourself the opportunity to take part in hearings about
the rate request. Public input hearings may be scheduled by the
Commission if a large number of customers express interest in
the case. At these hearings you have the opportunity to present
your views in person to the PUC judge hearing the case and
the Company representatives. All testimony given“under oath”
becomes part of the official rate case record. These hearings are
held in the service area of the Company.
Letters or requests for a formal complaint form should be
addressed to the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission,
Post Office Box 3265, Harrisburg, PA 17105-3265. For more
information, call the PUC at 1-800-692-7380. You may leave
your name and address so you can be notified of any public
input hearings that may be scheduled in this case.
