Understanding deregulation in Georgia

Deregulation of the natural gas market in Georgia took effect in 1998, allowing retail suppliers to compete for business. Although the word “deregulation” may seem intimidating, it simply gives you the power to choose among multiple suppliers and rate plans.

It’s important to realize that deregulation does not equal a lack of regulation or oversight. In Georgia, the State of Georgia Public Service Commission oversees public utilities. If you can’t resolve a dispute with your supplier, contact the Commission at 1-800-282-5813 or file a complaint online.

What is Atlanta Gas Light’s price to compare?

In most places, the local utility company also acts as a supplier for those who do not choose a retail supplier. The “price to compare” is the base charge, or price per therm (100,000 BTUs), which you can then compare to the rates offered by retail suppliers. However, Atlanta Gas Light does not act as a supplier, so there is no price per therm. Instead, you will need to compare local gas marketers’ rates to each other.
