Illinois Energy Alternative Nicor Gas


Natural gas consumers in Illinois may not know that they have options when it comes to the source — and the provider — of their gas and energy needs. Read through the following points to discover why Nordic Energy’s deregulated natural gas option may provide you and your wallet the convenience and price you’ve been searching for.

Nordic Energy Is a Nicor Gas Alternative

Nicor Gas is the largest natural gas supplier in Illinois, but this doesn’t mean that its services are right for your needs. Local utility companies such as Nicor and others in Illinois are often the only choice that customers know about.

Using Nordic Energy as a Nicor Gas alternative means that you, as the energy consumer, are taking matters into your own hands by opting for a deregulated source of natural gas. You are choosing for yourself and your family that better reflects your desires and plans for your natural gas usage.

Why Choose Us for Your Gas and Energy Needs

Choosing Nordic Energy as your natural gas supplier means that your natural gas will be supplied by Nordic Energy, an independently owned company specializing in energy services. Your gas itself will still be delivered through the infrastructure that Nicor Gas, or another local utility company, provides. Sometimes, you will receive one bill for both the delivery service and the gas itself.

Nordic Energy services over 14,000 residential customer accounts throughout the country, and we are dedicated to providing excellent customer service with real-time support. Get your quote today and begin learning more about natural gas usage with us.

Frequently Asked Questions about Nordic Energy

Customers who have never deviated from their local utility company may wonder why they should make the switch. Choosing an independently-owned company with outstanding customer service and over 170 years of working in the deregulated energy market may encourage you to investigate our deregulated energy plans. If you would like more information, read through the frequently asked questions below to make a solid, informed choice about your natural gas needs.

Why Is a Deregulated Energy Company a Better Choice?

Local utility companies often drive up prices of gas or electricity. Customers are then stuck with these prices, and this often means long wait times, poor customer service, and raised energy prices. Customers have no power in this situation because they only have one choice in an energy supplier.

Those who, like everybody else, need to service their home with reliable power often turn to deregulated energy companies like Nordic Energy. Because we serve residential homes nationwide and are not local to any area of the country, we focus on delivering the lowest prices on the market with personalized customer service.

How Can Customers Learn About Energy Choices?

At Nordic Energy, we like to take our customer education a step further than most utility companies do. In addition to having a dedicated customer service team that returns calls and emails quickly, we offer customer education in the form of day-ahead pricing, a glossary of energy-related terms, and a list of tips for conserving energy when you need to cut back on spending and usage.

How Can Nordic Energy Offer Competitive Gas Pricing?

Since Nordic Energy offers energy from multiple sources, these gas options make it possible to offer pricing that competes with the rest of the market. This means that we can offer you the lowest market price for your gas and electricity needs. Consumers of natural gas who choose a deregulated energy source can take advantage of this lower pricing even as local prices rise.

What Happens if There Is an Outage?

Your energy is still delivered by your local utility company whether you experience an outage in electricity or natural gas. For delivery concerns (such as an outage or spotty service), you should contact your local utility company to resolve the issue. If you have a problem with the gas itself, please get in touch with us to discuss any supply issues. 

Will Switching to Nordic Energy Disrupt My Service?

No, it should not. When switching to an independent energy supplier, you should not notice any bumps or disconnects in your service. Everything should run as it did before, and you do not need to upgrade any equipment to effectively make this change.
