Choice Gas Program: What happens if you don’t make a selection?
The Choice Program through Black Hills Energy gives you the power to select the best price and plan for your budget from an approved natural gas supplier. However, the key is to be savvy and make sure you do not miss the deadline as it can cost you more!
What is Defaulting?
Defaulting or also known as the “Do Nothing Option” is when you don’t make a natural gas plan selection through Choice after the completion of your last contract. Your natural gas plan will roll forward with the same provider and plan option. With whatever your current provider’s Defaulting pricing is, which is usually much higher than the Choice period pricing.
How can you avoid being on a default plan?
When your contract is up for renewal, you must make your selection during the enrollment period. It’s important to choose a supplier that offers pricing and plans that fit your budget and needs.
