Paying too much
for energy was
your only choice.
Until now.

Natural gas is affordable, reliable and plentiful

There are plenty of reasons to make the switch. Natural gas is the most affordable way to heat your home and water, with savings up to $1,200* each year when you switch from using electricity, oil or propane. It’s also the most affordable way to run major appliances like stoves, clothes dryers and barbecues.

Large and small businesses save up to 30%* each year on space and water heating when making the switch, with even greater savings when you switch more equipment to natural gas.

And with massive supplies right here in North America, the price of natural gas will remain low for years to come. This will help businesses in your community be more competitive as well as attract new businesses, creating and supporting direct and indirect local jobs.
