Atlanta Gas Light is the largest natural gas distributor in the Southeast. It provides delivery service to approximately 1.62 million residential, commercial and industrial customers in Georgia.

The natural gas market in Georgia is deregulated. Natural gas marketers compete to provide natural gas services to customers, creating a competitive market for the best in pricing and service plans. The marketers arrange the buying and selling of natural gas to residential and commercial customers, execute billing and oversee related customer service needs.

Atlanta Gas Light's role in Georgia's deregulated environment includes:

  • Distributing natural gas for the marketers
  • Maintaining the gas system infrastructure, including responding to gas leaks
  • Performing meter reading for the marketers
  • Ensuring the safe, reliable delivery of natural gas to Georgia customers
  • Offering online customer information about natural gas and gas-fueled products

Atlanta Gas Light is also very active in our communities, donating to energy assistance programs, contributing to nonprofit agencies, and supporting our employees' continuing volunteer efforts throughout the state.
