The Natural Gas Transportation Program was created as an alternative natural gas supplier program for commercial and industrial customers, as well as large residential buildings. In this program, Consumers Energy will continue to deliver the natural gas to you. Your preferred gas supplier will contract with you to deliver the natural gas to Consumers Energy for your use and will separately invoice you for that gas. If you purchase more gas than you use, the leftover gas will be held for your use in a future month.
A typical Gas Transportation customer may have one or more gas meters under their contract. Usually, at least one meter will have annual consumption of 8,000 Mcf or above. All of the accounts included in a Gas Transportation contract must be under the same ownership or management control. Customers wishing to enroll in Gas Transportation should be willing to provide their preferred supplier with consumption information throughout the month in order to match gas deliveries to usage and avoid penalties for purchasing too much or too little gas. Those customers willing to play an active part in the management of their natural may be able to save money on the cost and delivery of their natural gas.
In 2020, we introduced Group Transportation, a new program which offers savings with less day-to-day management. Group Transportation allows a gas supplier to manage the gas for multiple organizations under the same gas supply. This pilot program is available on a limited basis for customers of participating natural gas suppliers.
