Fixed Price Option (FPO)

We are pleased to once again offer customers the opportunity to “lock in” a specific price per therm for the Gas Supply Charge portion of your bill. If you choose to enroll in the “Fixed Price Option,” you will pay one fixed price per therm for your Gas Supply Charge from November 1, 2021 through April 30, 2022, even if the price of natural gas changes during this period.

With the Fixed Price Option (FPO), you can avoid natural gas price fluctuations and receive more predictable bills. You are encouraged to act as soon as possible, as the deadline for enrollment is October 27, 2021. If you have multiple accounts with Liberty, please apply for each account separately. The FPO rate will take effect on November 1, 2021 and will be reflected on the first bill after your application is processed. Below are some answers to frequently asked questions about this offer.
