Depending upon their location, natural gas customers in Georgia can purchase gas from one of three types of providers-an investor-owned local distribution company, a natural gas marketer or a municipal gas system.
- Liberty Utilities, Georgia's only local distribution company, is fully regulated by the Public Service Commission.
- Atlanta Gas Light Company became a pipes-only gas company in 1998, when it elected to open its territory to competition pursuant to the Natural Gas Competition and Deregulation Act of 1997. Ten certified natural gas marketers now serve customers on AGLC's system. The prices charged by marketers are market-based, but rates for AGLC's distribution service are still regulated by the PSC.
- In Georgia, 84 municipal gas systems provide natural gas to their residents. Prices for municipal gas service are not subject to PSC regulation.
