Which company has the best Georgia natural gas rates for you this month? Our monthly update on natural gas prices in Georgia can help you decide…

Here Are the Low-Cost Leaders for Georgia Natural Gas Rates

There are actually two low-cost price leaders this month for fixed rates, according to the Georgia Public Service Commission (GA PSC). They are XOOM Energy and Infinite Energy.

For a 12-month plan, XOOM is advertising .3490 cents/therm and Infinite is offering .3590 cents/therm. After you add in the junk fees, those quotes work out to be .94 cents/therm and .95 cents/therm, respectively.

GA PSC estimates the average customer using 717 therms over 12 months will pay $673.55 with XOOM and $681.92 with Infinite.

Note: All numbers are direct from the GA PSC’s January 2020 pricing chart.

Money expert Clark Howard‘s advice for January 2020 is to lock in with a low-cost provider of Georgia natural gas rates for the remaining winter months, if you haven’t already done so. High reserves of natural gas, coupled with both weakened prices and less demand overseas, mean we’re seeing great prices right now. In fact, if you haven’t comparison shopped in a couple of years, Clark says it might make sense to pay an exit fee to break your contract and go with a cheaper provider.

You may notice that Clark only likes fixed-rate plans for homeowners. With fixed-rate plans, the price per therm is written in stone each month for a year or more.

Having a fixed-rate plan means that if natural gas takes a jump in price, you won’t pay more per therm. It’s insurance against sudden spikes in commodity prices.

On the flip side, if natural gas prices suddenly drop, you unfortunately won’t get the benefit of lower prices, either.
