Columbia Gas Budget Plan, Akron Children’s Physician



Columbia Gas Budget Plan open registrations

Columbia Gas announced that registration is open to all customers for the 2021-2022 budget plan.

In August, customers can enroll in the budget plan in one of three ways:

  • Just pay the ‘budget payment’ amount on their August bill
  • Online at
  • Call 1-800-344-4077 to speak to a customer service representative

The budget plan allows customers to avoid higher heating costs in the winter by spreading payments over 12 months.

Once enrolled, a customer will pay the “budget payment” amount shown on their monthly invoice from August 2021 to July 2022. Accounts are reviewed and adjusted, if necessary, for accuracy in March.

Each customer’s budget plan amount is calculated individually by looking at their previous usage rates, typical weather conditions over 30 years, and the current and estimated cost of natural gas.

The budget plan is free and open to all Columbia Gas customers.
