HOUSTON, Dec. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ENCOA (Energy Company of America) is now offering natural gas in the Nicor service areas of Illinois. This extension is a sign that ENCOA is in-line with its national expansion plans, facilitated by value, attentive customer service and the practice of transparency.
According to NaturalGas.org the abundance of natural gas coupled with its environmental soundness and multiple applications means that it will continue to play an increasingly important role in meeting demand for energy in the United States. The American Gas Association stated in a recent report that America's natural gas customers are leading the way on carbon reductions and energy efficiency; in fact, despite a significant increase in the number of homes using natural gas, greenhouse gas emissions have decreased 40 percent per natural gas-consuming household since 1970.
What sets ENCOA apart is that it offers peace of mind to their new customers with a 12 month fixed rate on natural gas versus Nicor's rates, which change monthly. Depending on market conditions this can greatly affect the monthly price when the rate is not fixed as it is for ENCOA customers. ENCOA can offer competitive plans by negotiating prices and purchasing energy in the market, passing on those savings to its customers.
Switching is easy and only takes a few minutes. All customers need is their existing natural gas account number; ENCOA takes care of the rest. Customers can call 1-888-318-3085 and visit www.ENCOA.com, enter their zip code, and select the ENCOA natural gas plan.
