City residents and commercial customers enrolled in the natural gas aggregation program with Volunteer Energy Services Incorporated (VESI), will be receiving a notice stating a bankruptcy petition has been filed. The notice is factual.

City officials are working with Aspen, an energy consultant to gain direction for the aggregation program and when a new aggregation supplier will be offered to interested parties in our community.

From our understanding, VESI natural gas customers will default to the Columbia Gas sales service rate.

Information is very limited at this time. As new information is gained, this posting will be updated.
