Breaking up is easy to do.

Switch to energy you’ll love. Natural gas.

Say goodbye to that tank that always needs filling. Move on from the ups and downs of oil prices. Natural gas is so much easier to live with! You’re always connected to energy that’s reliable and consistently more affordable. Plus natural gas can do so much for your home – from heating that’s more efficient to cooking and barbecuing. When you’re ready to break up with oil, we’re here to help.

Here are just a few reasons why you should switch:


You only pay for the natural gas you use, as it’s always available when you need it (no scheduling deliveries)


Natural gas has historically cost less than electricity, heating oil or propane in Nova Scotia.


Use less fuel with natural gas appliances that are up to 98% efficient.


Keep your family safe — natural gas continues to be one of the world’s safest and reliable energy choices.
