Most residents of Michigan have the freedom to choose their natural gas provider thanks to consumer choice programs for households. According the U.S. Energy Information Administration, participation reached an all-time high in recent years with 340,189 residential customers and 49,551 commercial and industrial customers enrolled. This legislation advocates consumer choice and makes it possible for natural gas suppliers to compete with your current utility rates for your business.
How Does This New Natural Gas Market Work?
Natural Gas Choice in Michigan allows home and business owners to choose a price plan from a licensed supplier. Instead of a single provider buying natural gas and selling it to you for whatever price they please, this newer energy market model allows alternative companies to buy natural gas and sell it directly to you at a competitive price. Residents of states that allow utility choice can shop around for the best rates.
How Can Selecting a New Gas Supplier Save You Money?
When you switch your natural gas supply services over to a new company, you can get lower, money-saving rates. A natural gas company that buys local services, keeps their overheard costs low, and handles their budget responsibly passes those savings to their customers. Even with a new supplier, you will not have to make changes to how you receive your gas bills or place service calls.
What Should You Look for When Selecting a New Natural Gas Supplier?
Look for a supplier who understands that most families and businesses operate on a tight budget, especially when economic times are tough. Consider their track record when it comes to customer rates and offers. Lastly, make sure the company is accredited by the Better Business Bureau to get an idea of the quality of their customer service.
