Village of Silver Lake announces new rate in natural gas program

Residents and small businesses in the village of Silver Lake should have received a mailer concerning the natural gas aggregation program offer from Constellation Energy Services-Natural Gas LLC. Customers currently participating in the village's natural gas program should have a notice informing them of the new rate of $3.636/mcf for gas consumed from April 2017 through March 2018. These customers do not need to do anything to remain in the program, according to the village.

Newly eligible account holders who receive their gas supply from Dominion East Ohio will receive an opt-out notice from Constellation explaining the rate, terms and conditions, and methods for opting out of the village's aggregation program. These accounts will be added to the program unless they opt out.

There are two ways new customers can join the village program: call Constellation at 844-467-5249 or go online to

Customers served by another supplier should be aware of the obligations in their existing contract before joining the program. Many suppliers charge a penalty for early termination. Customers wishing to join the program must be in good standing with their bill payment and cannot be part of the utility's percentage of income payment program (PIPP).

Residents should contact Constellation regarding questions about the program.
