Georgia Natural Gas® (GNG) is proud to have presented our 5th annual Georgia Natural Gas TrueBlue Community Awards to recognize nonprofit organizations in Georgia that are making a difference in our communities.

In addition to Decatur Cooperative Ministry, four other nonprofits were awarded $5,000, and eight other programs received $2,500 each.

All of the 2015 award-winning nonprofit organizations exemplify GNG’s commitment and support in its focus areas of children and education, seniors, energy assistance, and the environment in Georgia.


Georgia Natural Gas is a proud sponsor of the Atlanta Science Festival, a public celebration of science at venues throughout the metro area to be held March 19-26, 2016. Curious people of all ages will explore the science and technology in our region and see how they connect to all parts of our lives in a variety of hands-on activities, facility tours, presentations, and performances throughout the metro Atlanta region. The Festival culminates in the free, family-friendly Exploration Expo — an interactive day of demos, hands-on activities, and stage shows at Centennial Olympic Park.

Festival-goers can enjoy a variety of events throughout the week, including opportunities to taste the science behind chocolate-making, experience the physics of circus acrobatics, play with robots, and tour local art museums to see the science behind creativity. GNG will be sharing its own love for science at the March 26 Exploration Expo, showcasing the technology that allows natural gas vehicles to compete on the roads.

Seasonal Savings Program

Do you turn your gas on and off every season? If so, you can avoid that hassle – and save money – with the Seasonal Savings Program, only for GNG customers.

Here’s how it works.
  • Before it gets cold, we’ll automatically schedule your gas service to be turned on in October. There’s no need to give us a call. And don’t worry, we’ll send you a letter with the date and time of your turn-on appointment well in advance.
  • Pick the plan that is right for you. Each season we’ll enroll you in the same price plan from the prior year. You will have the opportunity to confirm your enrollment on that plan, or choose a different plan that works best for your needs.
  • Once winter is over, we’ll schedule your gas service to be turned off. Again, there’s no need to contact us, and we’ll notify you of your scheduled turn-off date well in advance.

But that’s not all. As a valued member of the Seasonal Savings Program, we’ll waive your Seasonal Reconnection Charge

— that’s a $25 savings! You can even earn miles with Delta SkyMiles® just by paying your bill. We’ll carry over your account preferences – like Delta SkyMiles® number and auto bill pay information — so you won’t have to re-enroll every year.

Sign up for the Seasonal Savings Program today by calling 888.258.5841.

So enjoy your savings this summer, then relax and enjoy not having the hassle of managing your gas service this fall. Just call 888.258.5841 to sign up for the convenience and savings of the Seasonal Savings Program. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
