Georgia Natural Gas Guide

Bookmark this page for the latest rate info each month

By Clark Howard

Here we are on the cusp of fall -- one of the most popular times to lock in your natural gas rate for the remainder of the year. But which company has the best rate for you? My monthly update on natural gas rates in Georgia can help you decide...


Here are the low-cost leaders of September 2014 for fixed rate natural gas plans

There are actually 2 low-cost price leaders this month for fixed rates, according to the Georgia Public Service Commission (GA PSC). They are True Natural Gas  and Infinite Energy.

True Natural Gas is advertising a rate of .545 this month, while Infinite is at .569.

A typical True customer who locks in this month can expect to pay $751 over 12 months. Meanwhile, the typical Infinite customer can expect to pay $768 annually if they lock in this month. (By the way, a "typical" customer is defined as someone using 717 therms over the course of 12 months.)

Again, these are the lowest rates as determined by the GA PSC for the month of September 2014.

SCANA has special natural gas rates for U.S. military

New this month is a special offer from SCANA for all U.S. military. They're giving 3 cents off their advertised rate to all active, reserved, retired, and disabled U.S. military service members or their spouses/partners with valid military identification.

Current military customers who are already with SCANA can get the discounted rate without paying an exit fee. They're also offering up to $100 in bill credits, and they will make a donation to the USO for each new customer. Call SCANA at 1-877-467-2262 for further details about this offer.

Switching your natural gas company is easy and can be done over the phone or online. If you're ready to renew your contract, your current marketer may even match this month's low rates listed above.

Happy shopping!
