Natural Gas Prices in Georgia - Fall and Winter 2017-2018
Issue: How to get the best price on natural gas in Georgia
You can pay hundreds per month on natural gas.. or just $30 or so. Natural gas is deregulated in Georgia, and there are many natural gas providers yet there is only one pipe to deliver the gas to your house. How does this work? Simple, it is like buying a seat on an airline. You can buy it from many places, and at many places, but ultimately it is all on the same airplane.
What you need to know
Natural gas is a fuel gas (vapor) made of combustible Methane. It is a very efficient and clean burning fuel. In the home, it is usually used in your stove, hot water heater, gas furnace, gas fireplace and sometimes connected to an outdoor gas grill by a pipe. Natural gas is delivered to your house by an underground pipe. The meter tells the company how much gas you used.
Since natural gas is gaseous, temperature affects its volume, so it is measured in "therms" a way of counting the number of methane molecules, by their heat value, called a British Thermal Unit (BTU). A BTU is the amount of energy needed to raise one pound of nearly frozen water (39 degrees Fahrenheit) by one degree Fahrenheit (100,000 BTU = 1 therm).That way, regardless of the temperature or pressure, you are always paying the the correct rate for the actual amount of energy you used.
Rate plans, explained
There are at least a dozen different natural gas providers in Georgia. They offer different rate plans. For most people, a fixed rate plan offers the best price and total cost. However, a senior citizen may get a better deal with the senior plan.
Note: Beware of "Introductory Rates" - those are usually only low for ONE MONTH - then you pay a very high rate for the rest of the year.
Natural Gas Bills and Charges
In addition to a charge for the amount of gas you actually use,all of the gas companies hit you with a bunch of other confusing fgeees. Here they are:
