If you have a question or issue regarding the amount of your gas bill, please call us during regular business hours and we will do our best to resolve it.
When a dispute is settled in your favor, we will promptly credit your account or return any money owed to you.
When a dispute is settled in our favor, you must pay the disputed amount.
If you have a dispute that is not resolved immediately, you must pay the amount not in dispute – which may be based on your past usage under similar conditions. You must pay this amount within four business days from the date you register your dispute or by the delinquent date of the bill, whichever date is later.
If you cannot pay the amount owed, you may enter into a settlement agreement. Based on your individual circumstances, the agreement will allow you to apply the amount due over a reasonable period of time. If the settlement agreement extends beyond 60 days, we will put it in writing and send you a copy.
You must notify us at least 24 hours prior to the date of a proposed service disconnection that you have a dispute about your bill to avoid disconnection.
Our Customer Service representatives are available Monday through Saturday during business hours. Just call (314) 621-6960 (toll calls: 1-800-887-4173).
Note: we will not discontinue your service for the issue in dispute while complaint procedures are in operation. However, the amount not in disput must be paid.
