City of Akron Announces Constellation to Provide Competitive Fixed Rate for Natural Gas Aggregation Program


City of Akron Press Release
From the desk of City of Akron Press Office
Published: 10-06-2021

Akron, Ohio, October 6, 2021 — The City of Akron has chosen Constellation Energy Gas Choice, Inc. (“Constellation”) to again provide residents and small businesses with natural gas supply following a competitive bidding process under the state’s natural gas choice governmental aggregation program. In March 2016, Akron voters authorized the creation of an aggregation program to allow for bulk purchase of natural gas.

The competitive rate under the new agreement is $4.06/Mcf for gas consumed for the May 2022 through November 2024 bill cycles. The program starts with the November 2021 meter read. The billing months of December 2021 to April 2022 will be a variable rate based on the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) in Mcf plus $.12/Mcf. 

Akron Mayor Dan Horrigan said, “Natural gas rates continue to rise so we are pleased to secure a long term competitive rate for our residents and small businesses starting next spring.  Constellation’s fixed rate is more competitive than other current, comparable term offers listed on Public Utilities Commission of Ohio comparison charts and will help residents control their natural gas costs.  As always, residents have the option to opt-out and secure their own supply of natural gas on the open market, if they choose.”

Those eligible for the city’s program supplied by Constellation should expect to receive a notice in the mail from Constellation in mid-October. The notice will explain the rate, terms and conditions. Eligible residential and small business customers will be automatically enrolled in the program unless they choose to opt-out. Constellation recommends that residents look for this letter and if not interested, follow its simple instructions to opt-out by phone, mail or online at

“Constellation is proud to offer residents and small businesses in the city of Akron price certainty and the quality service we offer all customers,” said Kevin Klages, senior vice president, Mass Markets, for Constellation. “As a national energy leader with deep roots in serving Ohio consumers, we look forward to providing natural gas supply and a range of competitive energy solutions to Akron’s residential and small business customers.”

The city is pleased to make this program possible but asks that residents contact Constellation toll free at 1-833-500-2738 if they have questions. 

This offer is sold by Constellation Energy Gas Choice, Inc., an independent natural gas supplier licensed by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio, license No. 02-021G(6). Constellation’s price does not include any taxes, utility distribution charges or other utility fees, charges or credits.
