Duke Energy Ohio Customers to Receive a $133 Credit this Month

Duke Energy’s residential natural gas customers will receive a $133 credit in June as part of a settlement between the company and the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio.

Customers don’t have to do anything to receive the one-time credit. It will be automatically applied, according to a Duke Energy spokesperson.

Under the terms of the settlement, Duke Energy Ohio will eliminate roughly $85 million in costs that otherwise would be billed to customers, the release explained.

Approximately $4.8 million in remaining proceeds will be used to fund the utility’s low-income and senior citizen bill assistance programs. You can apply for these assistance programs on Duke Energy’s website.
