How does a WGES Fixed Price Plan work?
Your WGES natural gas price stays the same each month for the duration of your term. Because you’ll always know what your gas price will be, this plan gives you the most control and price predictability. Locking in a low price today is a smart decision since natural gas prices are likely to rise in the winter months when you use the most natural gas.top ^
How does a WGES Variable Price Plan work?

Please explain natural gas CHOICE to me.
Deregulation of the natural gas industry allows customers to CHOOSE their own natural gas supplier. Your gas utility company continues delivering your natural gas, reading your meter and providing emergency service just like they always have. You may now choose WGES to become your low-cost energy supplier.top ^
Does the utility company mind if I choose WGES as my energy supplier?
No, the utility company wants what's best for customers. Customers benefit from lower costs and expanded choices that may result from competition.top ^
Will I continue to receive one gas bill if I choose WGES as my gas supplier?
YES! You will continue to receive one bill from your local gas utility company. WGES gas commodity charges will replace the utility's commodity charges and will be listed on your utility gas bill.top ^
Will I be able to continue on the utility's budget bill program if I choose a third-party gas supplier?
For UGI Utilities and UGI Penn Natural customers: You will be able to remain on UGI Utilities' Budget Billing Plan; however, the Budget Billing Plan will pertain only to UGI Utilities’ distribution charges due to their restrictions. The gas commodity charges (from WGES) will be billed monthly based on the actual amount of gas delivered.
For PECO Gas customers: Yes, customers will be able to continue to use the PECO Gas Budget Plan following account reconciliation.top ^
Will I save money compared to what I pay my utility company?
WGES cannot guarantee savings against the utility company's rates since utility rates change monthly or quarterly. For our Fixed Price Plan, your price is guaranteed NOT to change for the full term of your contract. This puts you in control of your gas bill and protects your budget from utility price spikes and fluctuations. Month to month, our Variable Price Plan has a solid history of being lower than utility company rates.top ^
What is a therm?
A therm is simply a unit of measurement for natural gas. Just as you pay for gasoline for your car by the gallon, you pay for natural gas by the therm. Your total gas bill is comprised of the number of therms you use, multiplied by the cost per therm, plus other gas delivery charges.top ^
What is a Ccf?
A Ccf is simply a unit of measurement for natural gas. Just as you pay for gasoline by the gallon, you pay for natural gas by the Ccf. Your total gas bill is comprised of the number of Ccfs you use, multiplied by the cost per Ccf, plus other gas delivery charges.top ^
What are WGES CleanStepsSM Carbon Offsets?
WGES CleanStepsSM Carbon Offsets are part of the standard natural gas offer for WGES customers. Your WGES natural gas supply includes locally-sourced CleanStepsSM Carbon Offsets matched to 5% of your natural gas usage to support clean air and water projects in the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

What if I want to cancel with my current supplier and sign up with WGES?
We want to have you as our customer, but before switching, carefully review the terms and conditions of the agreement with your current energy supplier along with any utility program stipulations. You must notify your supplier that you are switching to another supplier. Then you must complete, sign and return the WGES consent form.top ^
What is the balancing charge?
The balancing charge is the amount charged by the utility company to manage the variation in your natural gas usage from day to day and season to season. It covers storage when less gas is needed and peaking when more gas is required. WGES charges the same amount as the utility company for this service.top ^
What happens at the end of my contract term?
Fixed Price Plan customers receive a renewal offer about 45-60 days before your term is over. However, you are not obligated to renew. Variable Price Plan customers will not receive a renewal notice.top ^
Who will come out to check for gas leaks and respond to emergencies?
Your utility company will respond to emergencies and check for gas leaks. They still own, operate and maintain all of the gas distribution systems, and you will continue to pay them for that service.top ^
Will I have to get new lines or a new meter?
No, WGES supplies your energy through existing utility electricity lines and gas meters.top ^
Will WGES perform a credit check?
WGES may perform credit checks and request financial data on customers. In addition, WGES requires customers to be current with their utility payments.top ^
Who can help me with the utility portion of my bill?
WGES can answer questions about your bill except for the distribution charges, which originate from your local utility company along with your bill. You can contact your local utility company directly.top ^
