In the deregulated energy market, there are a number of terms and concepts that the average consumer might not know. At Choose Energy, one of the most common questions that we see is: “what is the best natural gas company near me?”
While we can’t answer this for you, we aim to simplify the process of shopping around for the best Georgia natural gas rates. If you’re just starting to explore new natural gas plans near you, check out these how-to resources from Choose Energy to guide you through the process:
As you compare natural gas rates in Georgia, you will notice different plan types, including fixed-rate and variable-rate plans, along with renewable energy plans. Here’s how they compare.
- Fixed-rate plans let you lock in an energy rate for the duration of your plan (typically 12 months or longer). If you’re willing to commit to one of these plans, you should find that your energy bill will become more predictable.
- Variable-rate plans are preferable for energy customers that don’t want to lock into a long-term contract. They’re generally offered on a month-to-month basis and are easier to cancel than fixed-rate plans.
- Renewable energy plans allow commercial electricity customers in Georgia to work with providers that provide energy from green sources. Rather than powering your business directly with renewable energy, however, the provider will likely invest in green energy credits to offset your electricity usage.
If you choose not to purchase your natural gas from a supplier, your energy will be provided by a default company at a standard rate. However, this default company won’t necessarily offer you cost-effective natural gas rates, so it pays to shop around.
