NIPSCO gas customers can expect to pay less to heat their homes this winter, according to the utility company’s forecast for home heating bills. Projections indicate they will be four percent lower than last year. That means an average savings of $22 over the winter heating season for residential customers.
NIPSCO officials note usage amounts could be higher than projected if temperatures are colder than normal. That was the case last year due to record-low temperatures during consecutive months. NIPSCO’s projections take into account market forecasts, supply trends, storage levels and other considerations.
