I would like to cancel my natural gas service this summer. Last year, I didn't use any natural gas during June-August. I have a gas furnace and also a gas stove/fireplace. I do not have a hot water heater since that's supplied by the building. I don't cook or use the fireplace.

Complication: I live in Chicago and the service provider, People's Gas, is known for terrible customer service and making horrendous billing mistakes.
I'd really like to get rid of the service this summer since the customer fee is nearly $30 and it makes me angry that I am required to pay the customer fee even though I don't use the service in the summer.
Has anyone else tried this? If so, how did it work for you? The options on the People's Gas website for cancelling service seem to all relate to people who are moving and not those who just don't need/want the service anymore.
Note: I own my condo, so I don't have to deal with a landlord.
