When you're looking for the best price for natural gas, you have to do your homework to find a provider that fits your needs and provides affordable rates. Thankfully, there are some easy ways to find an affordable natural gas provider. At True Natural Gas, we want to ensure you have all the information you need to select the best natural gas provider and stay within your budget.
The Public Service Commission's Role
In Georgia, the Public Service Commission (PSC) is there to protect consumers shopping for energy. The role of the Public Service Commission is to work with companies like True Natural Gas and Atlanta Gas Light (AGL), to set rates and publicize information about those rates. The PSC also publishes info about gas rates as part of its role.
Ever notice when you're reviewing your natural gas bill that there's always a line item for "AGL Base Charge"? That's because Atlanta Gas Light, established in 1856 and one of the oldest corporations in the state, provides the infrastructure for gas marketers like True to delivery your gas. AGL also reads your meter.
Comparison Shopping for the Best Natural Gas Rates
Every three months, the Public Service Commission publishes a rate comparison by plan. As you can see, the comparison page lists the total bill amount for various plans, including senior, variable, and fixed rates.
Fixed rates allow customers to lock in a particular rate price. Variable rates will shift, potentially as frequently as month-to-month. These rates are harder to predict and may sometimes offer lower prices. However, there are times when those rates may be more expensive. You must do the research necessary to decide if a sudden rate change is a risk you are willing to take.
Do Your Homework
Unfortunately, some gas companies try to entice customers to switch natural gas providers by making false promises. To protect yourself, don't make a decision before you check the rate comparison website. This will provide an objective comparison of plans to inform your decisions.
Also, be sure to Google the company and research other users' experiences with them.
