UNION, NJ – Elizabethtown Gas customers will begin the new year with a little more money, thanks to a refund of a portion of their natural gas costs, the fourth refund in a year totaling more than $34 million in cost savings.

Approximately $6 million will be shared among residential and small commercial customers and will be applied to January bills. The one-time refund is based on the amount of natural gas used during the 12-month period that ended Sept. 30, 2015. Because the company projected higher prices for natural gas supplies than it paid, customers will receive a refund.

 

“While natural gas prices typically increase during the coldest months of the year due to supply and demand, the overall prices for the commodity have remained historically low,” said Brian MacLean, president of Elizabethtown Gas. “We are pleased to pass along additional cost savings to our customers.”
