Switch to Gas

There are plenty of reasons why you should switch to natural gas. By choosing Peoples, not only will you take advantage of these benefits, but you will also see firsthand how we are committed to making your life better.

Natural gas is affordable. While electricity and oil prices are rising, natural gas prices are falling. Natural gas costs about a third as much as electricity per BTU. 

Natural gas is clean. It’s the cleanest fossil fuel and the best choice for clean air in our region. Natural gas emits 45% less CO2 than coal and 27% less than oil.

Natural gas is abundant. Virtually all of the natural gas consumed in our country comes from North America, and 89% is produced right here in the United States. With increased supply from Marcellus Shale and other shale formations across the country, prices are expected to remain stable and low compared to other sources of energy.

Natural gas is best. Homeowners prefer natural gas for home and water heat because it heats up quickly and costs less. In the kitchen, professional chefs prefer natural gas for precise heat control and the instant on and off capability. Natural gas grills, lighting, and patio heaters make outdoor spaces more convenient and inviting.
