Peoples Gas & North Shore Gas to Refund $33.5 Million to Customers - No Fooling!

Chicago, IL – Starting today, Peoples Gas and North Shore Gas customers' will be getting a credit on their natural gas bills. The credit is from a regulatory mechanism the companies requested the Illinois Commerce Commission allow them to implement so that customers receive a refund on their natural gas bills when weather has been colder than normal. The regulatory mechanism is a Volume Balancing Adjustment that will appear as a credit on monthly gas bills from April, 2015 through December, 2015.

An average Peoples Gas heating customer will receive a total refund of around $29.50 and an average North Shore Gas heating customer will receive an average of $23.00.

Peoples Gas and North Shore Gas worked in collaboration with the Illinois Commerce Commission on a four-year pilot program which was monitored and approved by the Commission before the companies requested the Volume Balancing Adjustment be made permanent. Over the Illinois' Attorney General's objections, People Gas and North Shore Gas, along with the Illinois Commerce Commission, fought to keep the mechanism in place. The Illinois Supreme Court earlier this year agreed with the companies and the Commission in a unanimous opinion that supported the Volume Balancing Adjustment over the objections of the Illinois Attorney General.

By the end of this year, Peoples Gas will have refunded a total of almost $50 million and North Shore Gas will have refunded nearly $9.2 million to customers under the adjustment since its inception in 2008.
