Residential Energy Plans

PriceCap® Plan

PriceCap offers both price certainty and flexibility. You are protected in the event natural gas prices rise with a guaranteed maximum price per therm and also have the flexibility of paying a lower price per therm if market prices on the plan* decrease.

  • Enjoy a guaranteed maximum price per therm and, unlike fixed price plans, don’t be stuck with one set price if natural gas prices on the plan go down    
  • Included on your Nicor Gas bill if you receive service from Nicor Gas
  • One convenient monthly gas bill from us if you receive service from Peoples Gas or North Shore Gas

Protection And Flexibility

With PriceCap, your price per therm is capped at the guaranteed price, unless natural gas prices on the plan* go down, in which case you will pay the lower rate for that month. Each month, the price per therm is based on a published natural gas market price, plus a set amount per therm.  If that price is higher than your guaranteed maximum price, you pay the guaranteed maximum price. If it is lower, you pay the lower amount! You never pay more per therm for your natural gas than the guaranteed maximum price, no matter how high natural gas prices may go. The plan also includes a $1.99 monthly administrative fee.
