Find the confirmation code for your division as well as the estimated GCA natural gas commodity price updated daily throughout the Annual Selection Period, by clicking on the link below. The GCA natural gas commodity price option is not available for multi-year term selections.
The Wyoming Public Service Commission has approved a February Extreme Weather (“FEW’) Rate of $0.1226 per therm, on an interim basis, effective September 1, 2021, for a period of three years. The FEW Rate is for the recovery of the significant increase in gas costs related to Storm Uri in February 2021 caused by extremely high demand and production interruptions. Premises where the customer was receiving service under the Regulated GCA option on February 28, 2021 will be subject to payment of the FEW Rate for the duration of the effective period. If these premises subsequently select a Choice Gas Supplier during the FEW Rate effective period, the premises will still be subject to the FEW Rate. Premises where the customer was receiving service under a selected Choice Gas Supplier on February 28, 2021 will not be subject to the FEW Rate for the duration of the effective period. If these premises subsequently select to receive service under the Regulated GCA option during the FEW effective period, the premises will continue to not be subject to the FEW Rate. Additionally, any new premises adding service after February 28, 2021 will not be subject to the FEW Rate for the duration of the effective period.
How it works
Customers may choose their natural gas commodity supplier using the internet, mail, supplier or the rollover option. Active participation in the program is encouraged to allow customers exclusive control of the supplier, natural gas commodity price and the many available natural gas commodity price options such as fixed rate per therm, market index rate, fixed monthly bill, etc. that are available to them.
No matter which natural gas commodity supplier you select, Black Hills Energy will maintain your local natural gas system, read the meters, send bills and answer any questions you have.
If you utilize the rollover option, your account will rollover to your current natural gas commodity supplier and natural gas commodity price option, with your final price determined by the supplier within 15 days after the selection period ends.
The natural gas commodity price a customer paid the previous year does not carry over unless the supplier agrees to do so. Your final rollover price may be different from the prices quoted during the annual selection period.
Multi-year selection option
If you select a multi-year term through your supplier, you’ll know your natural gas commodity price option and natural gas commodity price —not only for the new program year (June-May) — but for future program years as well. When selecting a multi-year term, during the term of that selection, you will not:
- Receive an annual selection packet
- Receive supplier marketing communication
- Be eligible to make another selection
All Choice Gas selections are specific to the service address and are nontransferable to a different service address. Multi-year selection options are customer and service address specific. So, if you move during the term of a multi-year selection, you will be eligible to make a selection at your new service address during the next annual Choice Gas selection period.
For more information about multi-year options, contact any of the Choice Gas participating suppliers. The Gas Cost Adjustment (GCA) natural gas commodity price option is not available for multi-year term selections.

Supplier marketing and customer contact information
The natural gas market can be volatile, with available rates changing frequently during the selection period. To give you timely information so you can make the Choice Gas selection that best suits your needs, participating natural gas commodity suppliers may contact you by phone, text or email to share their individual offerings. We provide all natural gas commodity suppliers with the phone number and email address you may have provided for your Black Hills Energy account.
Although we want you to have the chance to receive this additional information from the natural gas commodity suppliers, we also understand that calls, texts and emails may be burdensome. Each natural gas commodity supplier is limited as to how often they can contact you. If you no longer want to receive these communications from a natural gas commodity supplier, request to be removed from their call list or opt out of email communications. After you’ve completed a successful selection, you shouldn’t receive any further contact from suppliers.

Frequently asked questions
Where can I get more information about the 2022 Choice Gas Program and the participating suppliers?
How do I select my supplier?
You can submit a selection online, through your chosen supplier, by mail or you can do nothing and roll over to your current supplier and price option.
What constitutes a “valid” selection?
A selection is considered valid when you submit your choice through one of the accepted submission methods on or before Thursday, April 21, 2022. Confirmation codes are time-sensitive, so check with your supplier about its expiration date. The first valid selection Black Hills Wyoming Gas, LLC receives will be considered your final choice. Record your verification number if submitting your selection online. You’ll need to sign any mailed selection forms for them to be valid.
What happens if I move during the Choice Gas program year?
If you move from one service address to another, or a new customer moves to a service address within the Choice Gas Program territory, that customer will continue with the supplier previously selected for that address. New construction customers will be mailed a selection packet. For additional questions about service address issues, call 888-890-5554.
Does the Choice Gas Program affect the quality of distribution service?
No. Regardless of your selection, Black Hills Wyoming Gas, LLC will continue to provide meter reading and billing services, respond to gas leaks, and ensure the safety and reliability of the gas supply to Choice Gas Program communities.
Does the Choice Gas Program affect distribution charges?
No. Changes in distribution rates occur from time to time and are subject to Wyoming Public Service Commission approval.
Are the Suppliers reliable?
What if I’m on Budget Billing?
If you’re a Budget Billing customer and select a fixed monthly bill price option a supplier offers, your outstanding Budget Billing balance will be due in full with your June billing.
What is the difference between Black Hills Wyoming Gas, LLC and Black Hills Energy Services?
Black Hills Energy Services (BHES) is a non-regulated competitive gas supplier. Black Hills Wyoming Gas, LLC is a regulated utility and administrator of the Choice Gas Program conducting its business under the name of “Black Hills Energy.”
BHES, the Choice Gas supplier, is affiliated with Black Hills Energy. Although the names of the two affiliated businesses are similar, the non-regulated competitive natural gas supply services provided by BHES are legally separate and distinct from the regulated Choice Gas Program provided and administered by Black Hills Energy.
