Nicor Gas - Gas bill increase

My gas residential gas bill increased over 75% from last year. You cannot do this to citizens and homeowners. I demand you to look at what you're doing to people who are "hand cuffed" to you.

I am sure there is a way to reduce this ridiculous amount of % of increase in our bills.

How are we supposed to survive this? Turn heat off in winter?

Look into your billing procedures and work with reducing your costs by demanding a change.

Desired outcome: REDUCED RATES

Nicor Gas - rebate offer

Rebate department has received my form, an email, and a call for the rebate on my pool more efficient heater .

I have waited since last August 2021.

I really am starting to think that the CEO of Nicor needs a letter?

Com Ed offered the same rebate on pool filter-- newly installed more efficient unit, I received their rebate within 6- 8 business weeks .

Like a call to me at this point not an email! Why would the rebate you offer take so long to process?

I re-submitted rebate form, account number, serial number on heater, etc.

Desired outcome: call me

Nicor Gas - my meter

I called about a month ago said we heard a loud noise (hissing and smelled gas) some came out I guess I was not home. I was told some one would be out to replace a valve because the technician did not have what he needed. So the were to come on Monday the 27 th of march but did not come out then it was rescheduled for Friday April 7 I received a message that that type of work is not done on Friday s only Monday s. SO a technician was to be here yesterday Monday April 10 we'll guess what No one came.
I m really upset that we pay our bill to your company but no one can seem to get out to our house to fix what needs to be done.
I would love a call to get this problem fixed AT my work number so I can actually talk to someone about this matter. Work phone # [protected]

Nicor Gas - Disconnect from main

We have been waiting for a gas disconnect from the main at for at least 6 weeks. The fee has been paid at the time the call was placed. My customer and I have repeatedly called for an update and it seems to be humorous to thier blatantly unprofessional staff that the process is taking so long. We are unable to even get an update as to when the inspection will take place before JULIE is called. This is disgusting to me, if we were to treat our customers this way we would be out of business.

As of now Nicor has been holding up $300, 000. We cannot even start the project with out the gas line being disconnected from the main.

Nicor Gas - No gas for 29 days

Nicor Gas is the worst company ever ever ever. Isn't there another gas company out there somewhere that we could use? I moved into a rental on November 14th and there was no gas meter attached to the house. Apparently they took all the equipment also. I called them on November 14th to set up new service however I couldn't because there was no gas meter or gas line to the house. Sonoco has been giving me the runaround for 29 days and I still do not have a meter or a gas line to my house it is freezing cold I live in Fox Lake Illinois and I don't know what to do next. Nicor did however tell me if I did drop my complaint with the Better Business Bureau that this would move along a lot quicker. So what's that telling you? I live in Fox Lake Illinois it is supposed to get down to single-digits and I have no heat no heat for me and my two girls little girls. I would really really really appreciate it if somebody can help me out here tell me who to call tell me who to complain to. God bless and I hope you all are warm.

Only my son and i, but between them estimateing my bill, the intrest, misulaess charges, and there outrages on going deposit they throw in every mouth it built up. I HAVE NO JOB AT THIS TIME, -becouse there is no day care thats under 200 hundred a week so it got to be two mouths of no payment of course even after shuting me off they keep finding reason to charge me so now i owe 1, 100. They will not give me payment arrangement want full amount, and iam now faceing being homeless! Li-hip will not help me becouse i am shut off already. ALSO i would have went to lihip sooner but they only help or let you sighn up 2 mouths out of the years . Most off the time it take up to 30- 60 day be4 nicor gas even add payment to your account, that dont help.I dont know what to do I have no one.

Nicor Gas - horrible service

NICOR is one of the worst gas companies I have ever had to deal with! Where to start!? I paid my gas bill in full on Tuesday and they shut me off 2 days later for "nonpayment". When I called to get a clear understanding of their stupidity, I was spoken in a condescending manner and found Kelly, Scott AND Stephanie to be the rudest and coldest individuals I have ever spoken to. I am still not sure how you have payment but still shut my gas off and then treat me horribly THEN tell me I have to schedule an appt to turn it back on in FIVE days! 5 days. I have kids. Its going to be 40 degrees tonight, I cant cook, bake, wash or dry clothes, take a hot shower or even a warm one, and we dont have heat! I explained this all to them and all I got was "sorry we dont have to legally turn it back on for 5 days!" I hope NICOR goes out of business. Karma people karma.
