UW Offers Negotiated Gas Rate to Employees and Retirees

April 20, 2017

The University of Wyoming is offering employees and retirees an opportunity to choose the negotiated natural gas rate under the Choice Gas program. Employees who have not selected a supplier and rate have until 10 p.m. Thursday, April 27, to sign up for the special UW rate.

UW negotiated the special natural gas rate with Wyoming Community Gas, one of eight suppliers selling gas under the Choice Gas program. The residential rate is being offered to employees in Source Gas' Casper Division, which includes Laramie and Casper, but not Cheyenne and Torrington.

“The negotiated UW employee option is an index rate, which is the monthly gas price, as listed on the CIG Index, with a $0.06/therm adder,” says Frosty Selmer, deputy director at UW Operations in charge of utilities.

For example, the CIG Index cost for February 2017 is $0.312/therm, which would put the billing at $0.372/therm for all of the therms used for the month. This price does not include the distribution charges added to all options, usually $0.20-$0.23 per therm.

Employees should keep in mind that the UW option might not be the most economical. UW also may elect to lock in a fixed rate per therm, at a later date, if warranted.

For current UW employees and retirees who want to sign up for the negotiated market index rate, Wyoming Community Gas offers two registration options: email Marquia at requesting the UW rate, or call Marquia at (785) 338-4717.

To register, you will need to have your account number and control number. Please note, Choice Gas forms will not be accepted at the UW Service Building.
