While the country continues to nervously eye the price of a barrel of gas, one source of clean fossil fuel quietly continues to play a critical role in the clean energy future of Southern California. Southern California Gas Company, now the nation’s largest natural gas distribution utility, provides energy and innovative service concepts to over 21 million customers in more than 500 communities.
If you use natural gas, you probably already know that it’s your smallest utility bill. Households that use natural gas for heating, water heating, cooking and clothes drying spend an average of almost $700 less per year than homes using electricity for those same applications. Natural gas is cheaper than electricity, propane or fuel oil for residential consumers.
