Why Choose Natural Gas?

If you live in a deregulated state, you can choose your natural gas supplier! But why choose natural gas?

What are the benefits of natural gas?

One benefit of natural gas is its impact on the environment. It can be derived from renewable resources and the use of it promotes the reduction of smog, acid rain, and greenhouse gas emissions. Homes which use natural gas can cut carbon emissions in half because of the efficiency of the appliances and delivery of natural gas to them.

Another benefit is residential and small business use. Natural gas is used to heat homes and small businesses, water and dryers, and is an efficient way to cook. When used directly, instead of converted into electricity, natural gas achieves up to 92% efficiency.

Why choose natural gas?

Aside from the benefits and efficiencies of natural gas, if you live in a deregulated state, you have the power to choose a natural gas supplier like AEP Energy, who offers options such as fixed and variable rates and terms to fit your needs. Much like electricity and other commodities, natural gas is able to be bought, sold and traded on the open market. Energy suppliers closely monitor energy prices and purchase natural gas for customers based on current market prices. This gives them the ability to sell natural gas at a locked in, often lower rate, than the utility.
