Dominion Energy releases cheaper August rates

WARREN — Dominion Energy Ohio’s standard choice and standard service rates are $2.36 per thousand cubic feet (Mcf) for August.

The new rates are 53 cents — or 18.4 percent — less than the August 2018 rates of $2.89 per Mcf and 15 cents — or 6 percent — less than the July rates of $2.51 per Mcf.

The average bill in August for customers in the rate plans would be $35.97, up 84 cents — or 2.4 percent — from $35.13 last August. The increase is primarily due to a recent increase in Dominion’s pipeline infrastructure replacement cost recovery charge.
