Gas Aggregation

Gas Aggregation Update; August 2022

As City of Salem residents are aware, Columbia Gas automatically switched Gas Aggregation contract participants to a Standard Choice gas supplier earlier this year.

AMPO, Inc. (our natural gas aggregation broker) continues to track the gas market daily for the best route forward for the City of Salem Gas Aggregation program. The market is not currently favorable to lock into a contract for the community at this time. AMPO, Inc. has recommended we wait until the market offers worthwhile pricing.

In order to select a gas supplier that fits your needs, Salem city participants are encouraged to go to and view the Apples to Apples Comparison Chart.

The choices selected can be filtered for a fixed rate with no early termination fees and would enable you to switch suppliers at any time at no cost to you.

AMPO, Inc. will continue to track the gas market for a favorable contract. When anew supplier is selected, residents will be notified by mail to have the option to join the Salem Gas Aggregation program.
