Project SHARE – Teaming Up with the Salvation Army

 

Have you heard the news? Gas South is partnering with the Salvation Army to bring Project SHARE to our customers. Last week, we collected donations of new and used blankets to bring to the Salvation Army’s shelter in Atlanta. Our President and CEO, Kevin Greiner, joined several of our employees at the shelter, as we worked with the residents to make the beds. It was a great way to kick off the program and give back to those who need it most.

Gas South employees, Salvation Army employees and shelter residents gather together to start making beds with the donated blankets.

Project SHARE is an initiative through the Salvation Army that collects money to assist those who are less fortunate with acquiring food, shelter, clothing, medical supplies and paying utility bills. Donations through the program help citizens in all 159 counties of Georgia and the money collected stays in the county from which it originates. You can sign up with Project SHARE by pledging to contribute any whole dollar amount you choose each month. The amount will be automatically added to your Gas South bill. Gas South will also be matching your donation up to $5 per month in 2013.

We are looking forward to participating in Project SHARE and we hope you are too. Find out more information and sign up for the program here.

Our President & CEO, Kevin Greiner teams up with Major Todd Hawks, the Metro Atlanta Area Commander for the Salvation Army to make beds in the bunk room at the shelter.

What is Pay-As-You-Go?

Have you heard about our Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) program yet? We created PAYG in 2008 to help credit challenged customers get natural gas service. This program allows customers to obtain service without a deposit or a pre-payment. PAYG is an alternative to the regulated provider program and can actually help people strengthen their credit scores.

How does it work?      

Each month, our PAYG customers are billed only for the gas they are forecasted to use over the next 30 days. This estimate is based on historical usage and the current gas prices. We also calculate the difference between the usage from the prior month and the charges you received. This calculation is reflected in the next bill to ensure that you only pay for the gas that you use. After 12 months of good payment history, you can move to a lower rate plan and we will report your good history to a consumer credit reporting agency to help improve your credit score.

The PAYG program offers low fixed and variable rates without any upfront costs. We also partner with several non-profit organizations through the program to help those in need. CredAbility, The Salvation Army, United Way, St. Vincent de Paul, Atlanta Community Food Bank and Action Ministries are all PAYG partners of Gas South.

How can I sign up?

If you think PAYG would work for you, please check out our website for more information. You can also call us at 1-877-347-7243. Temperatures are dropping outside, so let us know if you want to Pay-As-You-Go!

Say Hello to $10 and Goodbye to Paper Bills

**Update: This offer has been extended through APRIL 30th, 2013. So, sign up for paperless billing soon!**

Now through April 30th, Gas South customers can receive a $10 bill credit when they sign up for paperless billing for the first time.  It’s a great way to end the clutter and hassle of paper billing and receive a simple email notification of your bill statement.

Paperless Billing at Gas South

The first option is to receive email notification to view your bill online. Signing up is easy with Gas South’s Online Account Services- all you need is a valid email address, social security number on the account and your Gas South account number to sign up. The email notification will include your Gas South account number, amount due and the due date for your upcoming bill.  This makes it easy for you to pay your bill using whatever method you prefer.

Paperless Billing at Your Bank

The second paperless billing option is to receive your bill through your bank.  There is a difference between simply paying your bill through the bank bill pay and receiving your bill through the bank.  Most banks offer the option to receive bills as an additional service in their online bill pay.  Check with your bank to sign up for this option.  With this service, you should receive an email from your bank each month when your Gas South bill is available.

Regardless of how you receive your bill, you can always view it through your online account and pay it using whatever method you’d prefer.

If you have never done paperless billing with Gas South, then I’d encourage you to sign up for one of these options soon and get your $10 bill credit!   For more details, visit gas-south.com.

Clean Energy Fuels the CNG Revolution

Exciting news in the CNG world this week as Clean Energy and Honda are teaming up to bring natural gas vehicles to the market in our home state of Georgia. Last week, the two companies announced they will be offering a $3,000 fuel card at any of Clean Energy’s compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling stations for anyone who purchases a 2012 Honda Civic Natural Gas Vehicle. With CNG prices hovering around $2.30 a gasoline gallon equivalent (GGE), $3,000 dollars will provide enough CNG to drive 40,000 miles, based on Honda’s 27 miles / GGE City and 38 miles / GGE HWY fuel economy ratings.

On October 17th, Clean Energy, PS Energy and Clean Cities Atlanta opened Georgia’s 7th CNG facility, located on Whitehall Street in the heart of downtown Atlanta. Clean Energy is continuing to help fuel the CNG Revolution. The recent improvements in CNG infrastructure in Georgia, along with incentives from companies like Honda, will continue to make CNG attractive and viable.

Gas South is excited about these opportunities around Georgia and will continue to keep you informed of developments in the promising CNG Revolution. If you have any questions regarding this program or other questions on CNG in general, please comment below or email me at CNG@gas-south.com.

Does a $3,000 fuel card make purchasing a natural gas vehicle more practical for you?

Compressed Natural Gas Revolution

This week, Gas South had the opportunity to attend the opening of two new compressed natural gas (CNG) facilities right here in Georgia; the DeKalb County Station at Seminole Landfill and American Fueling Systems (AFS) station off of Buford Highway. These stations, along with other public and private locations in Georgia are the reasons why our state is continuing to lead the southeast in the field of alternative fuels. The development of CNG stations around the state have been facilitated by initiatives like Atlanta Gas Light’s (AGL) CNG Infrastructure program and public/private partnerships such as AFS’s fueling station in DeKalb will be on the leading edge of the CNG revolution. This revolution has huge local and global implications that could impact the fueling, automotive and the political landscape of our state and country. Learn more about alternative fuels in Georgia at Clean Cities Atlanta and CNG Now.

CNG or compressed natural gas is a readily available alternative fuel that is made by compressing natural gas to less than 1% of its volume at standard atmospheric pressure. CNG can then be used to fuel automobiles ranging from your personal car to dump trucks. At the moment large companies such as UPS and municipalities like DeKalb County are benefitting from savings of almost a $1.50 a gallon and switching their fleets, buses, and vehicles to CNG. Currently, Atlanta Gas Light (AGL) has a leasing program that allows residents to rent a device that refuels your CNG vehicles in the convenience of your garage. To get more information regarding CNG in Georgia, feel free to comment below or email me at CNG@Gas-South.com.

So what would it take for you to buy a CNG car and be part of the CNG revolution?
