Energy West becomes Black Hills Energy for local gas customers

Thousands of people around Cody, Ralston and Meeteetse have a new company providing their natural gas service.

As of the start of this month, Energy West's roughly 6,700 customers became customers of Black Hills Energy. They'll begin seeing the Black Hills Energy name and logo on company vehicles and correspondence in the coming months.

The change comes because Black Hills Corporation bought Energy West Wyoming and 72 miles of pipeline assets from Energy West Development. The $17 million deal was announced last October and finalized on Wednesday.

“We are pleased to welcome our new customers into the Black Hills family,” Justin Jones, Black Hills Energy’s manager of operations for northwest Wyoming, said in a news release. “We look forward to providing safe, reliable natural gas service to our customers through the immediate support of our entire gas utility team, along with a full menu of convenient services, including electronic billing and payment.”

Based in Rapid City, South Dakota, Black Hills Corp. serves 792,000 natural gas and electric utility customers in Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wyoming. (One of its subsidiaries is Cheyenne Light, Fuel and Power.) The corporation also generates wholesale electricity and produces natural gas, oil and coal.

Jones said Black Hill Energy will provide its new customers with updates and information.

“We like to hear from our customers,” he said. “We’re strong advocates for energy efficiency, so we provide tips for saving energy along with information on our other products and services.”
