End of December I realized I hadn't heard from IGS. I called NIPSCO 1st and the therm rate was $1.08. I called IGS and they proudly told me their therm rate was .95. I cancelled my service. I knew I had made a big mistake. Who knows how long the rate had been going down and if I had stayed with NIPSCO I would have been charged the going rate. Here is where they get you. They announce your current rate could be in effect for up to 2 billing cycles.
Meaning if I chose their lower rate or cancelled I was going to be charged 2 more months at $1.3999 a therm. IGS hides behind the phrase "it is the utilitiy companies policy not ours that it takes 2 months." That is interesting to me since I have rental units & that day I can have a service switched into my name or a tenants name & billing starts from that point on. I knew I was dealing with the wrong end of the snake. I hung up on IGS and called NIPSCO.
After honestly explaining to them I had made a mistake I asked if I could have my account cancelled and reopened with a new account number. NIPSCO warned me if I signed a contract with IGS there could be a penalty. Sinced I had signed nothing I was sure I wouldn't be charged. I also had cancellation numbers for both accounts. I suspect being paid the penalty is part of IGS's business plan. I am adult I take responsibility for this bad decision. All I can do from here is try to get the information out to others & any/all government agencies.
