SoCalGas Offers Tips to Help Save Energy and Money This Winter
As the days get shorter and temperatures slowly drop, customers may see a rise in their natural gas usage. This increase in energy usage usually means an increase in monthly utility bills.

Heating your home or business can be one of the top energy expenses, accounting for more than 50 percent of the total natural gas bill.

On average, customers may experience a three to seven times increase in their natural gas as heating systems work harder to keep the temperatures warm.

The SoCalGas Energy Resource Center (ERC) offers seminars, demonstrations and consulting services to help your business find cost-effective and energy-efficient solutions. For more information, visit this link.
