What is an Emergency?

Gas leaks, odor of gas, damaged lines, carbon monoxide symptoms, water main breaks or no water service are all considered emergencies.

If you smell gas, do not attempt to locate the leak. Instead, leave the house or building right away. Do not use any electrical switches, appliances, lights, telephones, or mobile devices, as an electrical charge could create a spark. When you are in a safe place, call M.U.D.'s emergency hotline at 402.554.7777 or 9-1-1.

If someone is showing symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, call 9-1-1 immediately. Symptoms are like the flu.

If you have a water-related emergency, call 402.554.7777. Our personnel are ready to assist you 24/7. When in doubt, call us immediately.

Schedule F – Fixed Rate Gas Service

Effective January 2, 2017 (Supersedes Schedule F effective January 2, 2014)

Availability

This rate schedule is available to customers contracting for the purchase of fixed quantities of natural gas at a fixed price for up to a 36-month period.

Customer must be purchasing gas under one of the following commercial or industrial gas rate schedules:

  • Schedule B, Commercial or Industrial Firm Gas Service
  • Schedule C, Large Volume Firm Gas Service
  • Schedule No. 3, Interruptible Gas Service
  • Schedule CS – 1, Contract Gas Service

Customer must have total gas requirements of not less than 200 decatherms per day. (Multiple meters/sites may be combined to meet this requirement.)

Remote automatic meter reading facilities must be installed to District specifications for each meter combined under the contract. Installation will be at customer expense.

Customer must have authorized personnel available during normal working hours who can accept or reject the fixed price offered upon notice from the District. (The Gas Operations Department will solicit offers from gas marketers and other suppliers for packages of gas to meet the customers’ requests. Gas Operations will advise customers of the best offer available and of the window available for acceptance.)

Rate – Monthly Billing

The contract “unit cost of gas” (UCOG) purchased by the District for this service will displace the variable “weighted- average cost of gas” (WACOG) included in the commodity charge of District rate schedules as adjusted by the monthly GCA (gas cost adjustment). All other charges in the applicable rate schedules will apply to this service. A monthly administrative charge will also apply.

The District reserves the right to pass on any additional tax or surcharge that may be imposed on the sale or transportation of gas under this rate schedule by any governmental or regulatory body during the course of the contract year.

Administrative charges will be applied per month per contract. Monthly charges for billing purposes by rate schedule:

 Basic administrative charge (one delivery point) $ 98.00
Additional administrative charge per each additional delivery point 49.00
Schedule B service charge – per meter 18.62

Additional Charges

Actual volumes purchased will be balanced to contract quantities. Additional charges may apply:

  • If actual volumes used are less than contract volumes for the billing month and the contract UCOG is greater than the system WACOG for the month, an additional charge equal to the contract UCOG minus the system WACOG per decatherm will apply to the variance of actual volumes from contract volumes. If a variance is caused by District curtailment, no additional charges will apply.
  • If actual volumes used are greater than contract volumes for the billing month, actual volumes in excess of contract volumes will be billed at the customer’s applicable underlying rate schedule, i.e., rate schedule B, C, No. 3, or CS-1. 


Statutory Payment to Cities 


Under Sections 14-2138 and 2139, R.R.S.1997, the District is required to pay to each city or village 2 percent of retail sales of gas. Two percent has not been included in the above rate. Therefore, the rate for all customers residing inside corporate limits is 2 percent greater than the rate indicated above. The UCOG contract price will also be adjusted to include 2 percent for city or village when applicable. 


Other Terms and Conditions 


All terms and conditions of the customers’ applicable underlying rate schedules that are not modified by the above shall apply to gas service rendered under this rate schedule.
