Xcel Energy says bills are dropping for February compared to
January and February 2008.
The utility filed a monthly gas cost adjustment for natural gas
The commodity price proposed to the Colorado Public Utilities
Commission for residential and small-business customers will
decrease by 3 percent next month — to $0.5064 per therm — from
Last February, therm price was $0.6927, or 26.9 percent higher
than what has been proposed for next month.
Part of the savings will be less use.
With warmer weather expected through the month, Xcel anticipates
most customers will use 22 percent less natural gas for heating
compared to January.
Overall bills could decrease by 21 percent to $86.21, based on
projected use of 106.8 therms.
This compares to bills this month of $109.44, on projected use
of 137.1 therms.
Typical residential February 2008 bills were $101.17, which
would be 15 percent or $14.96 higher than projected for next month,
adjusted for average current use of 106.8 therms.
Typical small-business customers could use 18 percent less
natural gas in February when compared to this month.
Bills would decrease 18 percent to $416.30, based on projected
use of 532.6 therms; this compares with bills this month of
$509.04, on use of 645.9 therms.
Typical February 2008 small-business customer bills were
This would be 13 percent or $64.38 higher than projected for
next month, adjusted for average current use of 532.6 therms.
If approved, the new natural gas commodity price would take
effect Feb. 1 and only apply for the month.
