About Us

Atlanta Gas Light provides natural gas delivery service to more than 1.6 million customers in Georgia. In operation since 1856, the company is one of the oldest corporations in the state.

Today, we’re the largest natural gas distribution utility in the Southeast. In Georgia’s deregulated natural gas market, we don’t sell natural gas to customers. Instead, we operate and maintain the infrastructure that delivers the gas to customers of certified natural gas marketers. To establish natural gas service, please contact a marketer.
