Choice Gas Program: What you need to know
As we approach spring, it’s that time again for Black Hills Energy residential and commercial customers in western Nebraska and Wyoming to select their natural gas supplier.
Choice simply allows you to select a natural gas program and pricing from approved suppliers that best fits your needs and budget.
How do I know if I’m eligible?
This program is for residential and commercial customers who are currently served by Black Hills Energy in western Nebraska and Wyoming.
When can I sign up?
Your timeframe to enroll your natural gas with a supplier varies by state. Below are the dates for the 2021 enrollment periods.
Pre-enrollment Jan 15- April 2
Annual Enrollment: April 2 – 22
Annual Enrollment: March 18 – April 22
How do I know which program is right for me?
Choosing the right natural gas program can help provide stability to your budget for up to three years and give you peace of mind from market volatility. At WoodRiver Energy, we offer three distinctive natural gas programs for you to choose from:
Guaranteed Index Price
Follow the market prices with a rate per therm that changes monthly plus a small adder fee. Your bill each month will fluctuate based on market price and your usage.
Guaranteed Fixed Price
This program locks in your price per therm for up to two years (residential) or three years (commercial). This plan eliminates the fluctuations in the market price and your only variable cost is your usage.
Secure Fixed Price (Fixed Monthly Bill)
This program provides complete budget security by protecting you from usage increases and market cost spikes. You will pay the same amount every month, giving you unlimited natural gas.
How can I sign up?
We’ve made enrolling your natural gas easy with our quick online tool that allows you to compare the cost of each program and enroll your natural gas in less than five minutes.

What do I need to sign up?
To make the signup process as quick as possible, please have your Black Hills Energy account number available which can be found at the top right-hand corner of your bill.
What happens if I do not make a selection?
If you do not make a selection for your residential or commercial natural gas by April 22, you will then be transferred to your current supplier’s default rate. This rate is typically higher than their program rate, so it is important to make your selection before the deadline.
