The Market, Deregulation and What it Means to You
Natural gas is one of the cleanest and most efficient fossil fuels. For that reason, it is being used more often to produce electricity. That contributes to the rising cost of supply, and industry experts expect it to continue. On top of this, production from many older gas wells is declining and potentially reducing supply.
Natural Gas Deregulation
The natural gas market has been deregulated since 1985. Part of this evolving legislation stipulates that we can offer a fixed price that would appear directly on your gas bill. Additional information on what deregulation means for you can be found in the link below.
