What Deregulation Means for Residential Natural Gas Prices

Homeowners have probably heard a lot about energy deregulation in the past few years, but what does that actually mean? To put it simply, deregulation means you have more say in the way your utility company purchases the fuel that heats your home.

Prior to deregulation, your utility provider — whether it’s Columbia Gas, UGI, PECO, BGE or any of the other utilities in Pennsylvania or Maryland — simply bought your natural gas at market prices. Deregulation allows you to specify which company they buy from, which gives you access to pricing plans that better fit your lifestyle.

When you choose an alternate supplier like Shipley Energy, you're not removing the important role that the utility takes in the delivery and administration of your home’s fuel and energy. Instead, we use our buying power to offer you a great rate on residential natural gas.

Helping our residential customers in PA, MD and OH make energy easy is something Shipley Energy has been doing for more than 85 years. We do that by offering a variety of flexible natural gas pricing options to let you take control of your home energy costs.

Switching is Easy!

There is no sign-up fee or interruption in service when you switch to Shipley Energy. While we’ll provide your home’s natural gas, your current utility provider will continue to deliver your gas, read your meter and send you a monthly bill.

You have options

Our Fixed Price plans provide 100% guaranteed fixed pricing. Once you lock in a price, your cost per your usage will remain the same for the duration of your plan, regardless of seasonal market increases or other factors.

Under a Variable Price plan, residential natural gas rates in PA, MD, and OH will change month-to-month. These seasonal price changes can still have a noticeable impact on your utility bill — even if you’ve kept your usage low and invested in energy-efficient appliances.

Switching Energy Sources?

There are several keys benefits to switching your home’s energy to natural gas. Natural gas is better for the environment than other fossil fuels — compared to coal, it produces 65% less carbon emissions. And compared to heating oil, it’s 25% cleaner. This makes natural gas a great choice for anyone concerned about the environment.

The main benefits of switching energy sources, however, are the cost savings. By far, residential natural gas prices are lower than any other fuel. This is partly because 98% of the gas we use is produced in Canada and the United States. As a result, transportation costs to Pennsylvania and Maryland are low and foreign events have little impact on availability and pricing.

Shipley Energy can help you economically convert your home and start taking advantage of the many benefits of natural gas. Call us at 1-800-839-1849 to learn more about how to switch from oil or propane to natural gas.
