So, I've found a rental to move into. The big decision I have to make now is about what gas marketer to use. Last time I lived in Atlanta, I was in a big complex and the decision was made by them - this time I have to choose. The place I'll be renting uses gas for the stove, water heater and heat, if that makes a difference.

I found this list on the AGL site:

Quote:
Fireside Natural Gas
Gas South
Infinite Energy
MXEnergy
SCANA Energy
Stream Energy
Any recommendations as to which tend to have the best rates and/or customer service?

Thanks!

It's best to do your own research on the Georgia Public Service Commission site, here: Georgia Public Service Commission

No one supplier is cheapest all the time, for all plans.

For what it's worth, I use Fireside and have been very happy with them.

I've used GA Natural Gas for nearly 3 years. Customer service is great (although all I've needed to do is call them twice). Lowest monthly charge I could find, and with the 12 month lock in, my rate is lower than any of the others. Cobb EMC and Gas South have a deal, but even with that, my rate with GNG was better, and as a bonus, they also use recycled natgas.

I use MX energy. One thing that I recently found is that you can negotiate on the posted fixed rate. Just reupped, and negotiated down to a lesser rate than what was initially offered. Good news.

Apart from the fixed rate, lot of these resellers offer Gift cards or cash back towards statements regularly. For ex: Scana currently offers 5000 delta miles (which you can redeem for a $50 GC at Sears). You can search to find out such offers.

Just my 0.02.

I use GA Natural gas also, best thing to do is what everyone else said... shop around. Don't be afraid to say, "well such and such company quoted me this price fixed for 12 months". They will deal.

This is a very old thread but I found the information as valid today as it was five years ago. Gas South says, (effectively) "We don't match rates, but you are eligible for a preferred rate that happens to be a mil more than the rate that other company is offering you."

I wonder why their prices are so much higher. Is there something there I'm missing?

We have a flat rate for gas (same monthly rate summer and winter). We have nearly a 3000 square foot house, on gas heat for $99.00 a month. This was a substantial savings when compared to $300 - $400 dollar bills we received when we had the other plan during the winter months. Having a gas hot water heater and of course leaving the pilot light lit on the furnaces during the summer would run us $40- $45 dollars a month anyway, and the one rate bill allows us to budget more effectively.
