Illinois Energy Alternative Peoples Gas

Illinois skyline

Choosing a natural gas supplier for your home’s energy needs can be a tricky undertaking. Gas is not a substance that you see, and if you’re in a well-built home with no leaks, you’ll likely never smell it either — yet it powers so many parts of our lives.

This important gas is often sold at a high price through local utility companies, and many customers never question whether they could receive the service elsewhere for a lower price. With Nordic Energy, you can have a little bit more control over your life and your finances when you switch to a provider that often provides the lowest energy costs on the market. Read on to discover more about deregulated natural gas services and learn what we can do for you.

Nordic Energy Is a People’s Gas Alternative

When you choose Nordic Energy over a local supplier in Illinois, including People’s Gas, you are taking control of your future as well as your gas bill — and there could be a significant difference between your bill through a utility company and one from an independent supplier. People’s Gas is a utility company, which means that it services local natural gas needs through the existing infrastructure. 

Most people don’t know that they have a choice when it comes to energy. In fact, many people assume that the only energy options that exist are the locally-owned utility companies such as People’s Gas and others. It’s part of our mission to educate our customers on natural gas usage, electricity, and the fact that in many areas of the country, you do not have to stick with what you’re given when it comes to energy services.

Frequently Asked Questions

When you choose your source of energy, you are making decisions that affect your life as well as your family’s. Be informed before you switch services by reading through the following FAQs listed below.

What Does Deregulated Energy Mean?

In most metropolitan areas, a local utility company holds a monopoly over energy services. On one hand, this could mean that this company is truly the only option for local customers. On the other hand, the lack of diversity could indicate that a local utility company is used by most local customers who are not aware of their options.

Deregulated energy simply means that in the case of electricity and natural gas, the energy market has been restructured to include non-local suppliers. This increases the competition between energy supplies so that independent companies may offer much lower pricing for the same services. As competition increases, the prices are driven down — similar to any other market. An alternative gas supplier such as Nordic Energy offers high-quality energy services that are delivered through the existing utility infrastructure.

How Do I Switch Services?

Switching your energy services to an independent provider is not as complicated as it may seem. You will not need new equipment or utility infrastructure because your new natural gas will be provided through the same infrastructure as it was when you were using People’s Gas or another local utility company.

Your bill may look different depending on which company you are switching from. Some local utilities send one bill that includes the cost of the delivery service (theirs) as well as the supplier’s service (ours). Others do not bother combining the two, which means that you may see two bills. This, however, should be the only major difference — after the switch, everything should run smoothly without any action on your part.

How Does Nordic Energy Offer Lower Prices?

Many people are surprised to learn that their natural gas can be more affordable. Because we are an independently owned and operated energy company, we are able to offer competitive pricing. This means, for our customers, that we can serve them with the same quality of natural gas as a local utility company, but at the lowest market price available.
