About Us

As part of the AGL Resources family, Atlanta Gas Light provides American, abundant and affordable natural gas efficiently to 1.5 million Georgians. We’ve been a trustworthy source of safe, clean energy — and a constant partner to almost 200 counties we serve throughout Georgia — since we installed the City of Atlanta's first natural gas streetlights more than 150 years ago

Today, we’re the eighth largest natural gas distribution utility in the United States and the largest 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.
