Communications on Impacts of Higher Fuel Costs
Natural gas prices continue to rise, and forecasters predict gas prices will climb even higher in mid-to late November. FMPA created communications on this topic for members to use. The draft customer letter and op-ed discuss the impacts of higher fuel prices, what local utilities are doing to keep costs low, and what customers can do to manage their power use and electric bills. Ryan Dumas emailed the draft letter and op-ed to FMPA’s Board of Directors, Executive Committee and other interested parties on Oct. 26. Members are encouraged to share this email with their communications and customer service teams to customize and share with customers.
