Bishop Energy Services, LLC BBB Business Review

Enrollments After August 16th

The Customer Choice program runs from April 1st thru March 31st each year.   As a supplier, we are required to flow 1/12 of your natural gas needs each month.  As a residential customer, the majority of your gas is generally used during the colder winter months.  Therefore, the 1/12 that we flow during the warmer, “less usage” months goes into storage for you to use when you need it during the colder winter months.  This is how you are able to capture the lower prices as driven by supply and demand. That gas is stored for later use lessening the amount of higher priced gas that is needed to be flowed on your behalf during the colder months.

 

ATTENTION: Starting September 17th all new enrollments will be placed in a temporary price category (MID for Consumers and 02 for DTE Gas Company.  This temporary category will be at a slightly higher price to offset penalties that Bishop Energy will incur on any new customers behalf.  At this point in the program year there is not enough time to flow enough gas to meet new customers’ winter usage demands.  Any gas consumed by new customers that was not flown by Bishop will come out of the utility’s higher priced gas.  To offset this loss it is necessary to charge a slightly higher price.  At the end of the program year, March 31st, all MID/02 enrollments will be moved to the lower price VAR/01 category.
