Georgia Energy Facts
- Georgia is one of the few states where at least 30% of household energy consumption is used for space heating and at least 10% of the energy consumed in homes is used for air conditioning (compared to the national average of 41% for heating and 6% for air conditioning), according to EIA's Residential Energy Consumption Survey.
- The Elba Island, Georgia, liquefied natural gas (LNG) receiving terminal can regasify up to 1.8 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day and has storage capacity for 11.5 billion cubic feet of LNG. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has approved additional facilities to export up to 350 million cubic feet per day of natural gas as LNG.
- In February 2012, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission approved the construction of two new nuclear reactors at the Vogtle nuclear power plant in Burke County, Georgia. The two reactors have startup dates in 2019 and 2020.
- Georgia’s four existing nuclear reactor units accounted for 26% of the state’s net electricity generation in 2015, coal accounted for 29%, natural gas accounted for 39%, and renewable energy, including hydroelectric power, contributed 6%.
- In 2015, Georgia ranked 8th in the nation both in net electricity generation and in retail sales of electricity.
About Energy Choice in Georgia
Residents and businesses in most areas of Georgia have had energy choice since 1997! Consumers in Georgia service areas that have natural gas choice are able to select a retail natural gas supplier in order to heat their home or business. There are many retail energy suppliers offering Georgia natural gas supply plans, and they’re all competing for your business.
If you’re moving to a Georgia area with natural gas choice, you can choose a retail natural gas provider. If you already live in Georgia, however, you may be ready to switch to a new provider for any number of reasons. Maybe you’re interested in finding a green energy supply plan, a longer contract or new customer benefits.
You may be able to save on your monthly heating costs by switching to a new home energy supplier, like North American Power. See if you can save>
How Energy Choice Works in Georgia?
Your home natural gas bill consists of two parts – delivery service and energy supply. Delivery service includes the pipes that carry natural gas to your home. The energy supply portion of your bill is for the natural gas you use to heat your home. Who supplies that energy is up to you, the customer. While each utility’s home natural gas bill is different, about half of the total bill is for delivery and the rest is for the energy supply you use.
Thanks to energy deregulation consumers can switch from their utility to a retail energy supplier, like North American Power that is buying natural gas on the wholesale energy market.
Choosing us means you can be informed about how much you’re paying for natural gas, not just settling for the rate your gas utility is offering you. Just like you shop around for the best cable provider or mobile service plan, you can shop around for your home’s natural gas supply!
If you choose North American Power as your new natural gas supplier, you will receive a bill directly from us that includes natural gas supply costs and the utility’s delivery charges all in one bill. We will be your source to answer any questions you have and handle any service and outage problems. But don’t worry, no matter who you choose to supply your natural gas energy, your Georgia natural gas utility company is still responsible for maintaining the gas lines and delivering natural gas to homes.
