What is swing percentage, and why does it matter?

Swing percentage is a distinguishing factor between gas solutions. Your “swing” indicates how much you can deviate from your monthly usage and still be charged your fixed rate. The most selected swing options are 0% swing, 10% swing, and 100% swing.

0% Swing

Your supplier determines your monthly quantities based on historical usage. Any therms you use over your monthly nominations are purchased at the market rate. If you use less than your monthly nomination, those unused therms are sold back to the market and you are credited the different based on the current market.

0% Swing

If you exceed more than 10 percent of your contracted quantities, you pay a market rate for those additional volumes. If you use under 90 percent of your contracted quantities, the supplier sells the remaining quantity back to the market and credits you the difference at market rates.

0% Swing

You pay a set price per therm for all your contracted quantities. If you exceed or use under your monthly contracted usage, your usage will be charged at your contracted rate.
