SUSTAINABILITY MATTERS

Georgians all over the state look at our blue logo and think natural gas. And for good reason – we serve more of them than any other gas marketer in the state. We’re proud of that. But we’re also proud of our record of environmental responsibility. We like green just as much as we like blue.
