Far too often, consumers stick with their utility company to supply and deliver gas to their home or business. In Pennsylvania, though, you have the right as a consumer to choose a Columbia Gas alternative, such as Nordic Energy.
Nordic Energy is considered an alternative gas supplier. That means we can supply gas to your home or business, often with better consumer benefits than your utility company or other alternatives, and without affecting the reliable and dependable infrastructure you depend upon for delivery.
To best understand the way Nordic Energy offers an alternative to Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania is to examine each company’s roles. Columbia Gas is a utility company. It’s responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the infrastructure that brings gas energy to your home or business. Regardless of who supplies the gas, if you’re dealing with an outage or gas leak, you’ll reach out to Columbia Gas so they can get to work resolving the issue.
For many consumers, Columbia Gas also serves as their energy supplier. These consumers pay Columbia Gas for their gas use and to deliver said gas to its destination. In situations like this, where the utility company acts as both the supplier and deliverer of gas, the utility company gains complete control over the consumer’s energy needs.
While you can’t change who delivers energy to your home or business, you can change who supplies the gas. When a consumer does this, they’re then purchasing their gas from the alternative supplier. It should be noted here that even when you go with an alternative gas supplier, the utility company remains responsible for the infrastructure that delivers the gas to your home or business.
By purchasing your gas through a different supplier, you may gain access to consumer benefits and rewards that utility companies simply can’t match. These consumer advantages stem from the fact that alternative suppliers often compete for customers at a disadvantage. To help incentivize customers, alternative suppliers, like Nordic Energy, offer things like improved customer support, rewards systems, and financial bonuses to consumers who make the switch.
When you choose to switch the gas supplier to your home or business, you’re putting your power as a consumer to work. It costs nothing to look at the competition and see if Nordic Energy can offer better energy rates, customer support, and consumer rewards.
The Nordic Advantage is what separates Nordic Energy from utility companies and other alternative suppliers. This advantage stems from our current role in delivering natural gas and electricity to over 140,000 residential customer equivalents throughout the country.
It can be difficult work convincing 140,000 people to change their energy supplier. However, the work we put in has helped us learn how to best compete for customers and ensure our service offerings go unmatched.
One of our main priorities is customer service. From our own experience, we know that getting in contact with a real person at a utility company can be a fool’s errand. It can seem like their lengthy phone trees and automated responses are designed to frustrate and get you off the phone so they can continue to keep your business without needing to invest additional resources to keep you satisfied.
When you're a customer at Nordic Energy, we provide you your own dedicated sales executive. They’re your go-to person for questions. We back each of our sales executives with a team of energy management professionals who can provide insights and additional support.
This focus on supporting our customers leads to our belief that an informed consumer is the best consumer. We provide price quotes in real-time, which beats the multiple hours, if not days, it takes our competition to send you the same data. There’s no stringing you along in hopes of wearing you down. We want you informed so you can make the best decision for you.
Speaking of prices, Nordic Energy can offer competitive gas rates. We source our energy from multiple markets. This gives us leverage to negotiate and help ensure we purchase your energy at the lowest possible market costs. Our competitors, on the other hand, tend to prefer sourcing from one market. This leaves them open to pricing fluctuations that could lead to a surprisingly high monthly bill.
We also provide our customers with an extensive rewards program. New customers receive a $100 Amazon gift card 60 days after making the switch to Nordic Energy. All customers are eligible to receive $50 in rewards dollars each month, too. These rewards dollars can be used on travel, entertainment, and shopping.
Most customers will receive a single bill from their utility company that lists their delivery charges and our agreed-upon charges for energy use. Some businesses may receive separate bills.
