Business customers can purchase all supplies from Nicor Gas as a "sales service" customer, choose an alternative supplier under Customer Select, or elect to become a transportation customer under Rider 25 or one of the unbundled transportation rates: Rate 74, 75, 76 or 77. Customers who can secure supplies at costs lower than our commodity gas cost can see considerable savings.
Rider 25 is a fully-bundled service under which customers can transport their own supplies. A fixed storage capacity is assigned to each customer equivalent to 28 times (31 times beginning June 1, 2009) their Maximum Daily Contract Quantity (MDCQ). Each customer is fully backed up, and any supplies required in excess of customer-owned gas will be provided by Nicor Gas at the commodity gas cost.
Customers that have more than one account in our service territory may form groups. Grouping allows consolidation of administrative activities such as nominating gas.
