The City of Hamilton provides natural gas to its citizens to use for cooking, heating water and business/home. Being a municipally- owned utility, the City receives a prepaid discount on natural gas that only systems like ours can receive. With this discount, we are able to provide our customers with natural gas at a rate that is 15%- 20% less than Duke Energy customers.
From 2006-2011 residential gas customers in Hamilton spent approximately $1,065 less for natural gas service than Duke customers. This represents a total savings of $23,000,000 for Hamilton residential customers over 6 years.
