UW Offers Negotiated Gas Rate to Employees and Retirees

April 18, 2018

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 5 p.m. Thursday, April 26, 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 available to employees in Source Gas’s Casper Division, which includes Laramie and Casper, but not Cheyenne and Torrington.

“The negotiated UW employee rate is a fixed two-year rate, which is at $0.282/therm for the term from June 1, 2018, through May 31, 2020. Therefore, you will not have to nominate again until April 2020,” says Frosty Selmer, deputy director at UW Operations in charge of utilities. 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.

For current UW employees and retirees who want to sign up for the two-year negotiated fixed rate, Wyoming Community Gas offers two registration options:

-- Email Kathy at requesting the UW rate.

-- Or call Kathy at 1-785-338-4717 before 5 p.m. April 26.

You will need to have your account number and control number to register. Choice Gas forms will not be accepted at the UW Service Building.
