When it comes to small businesses, there is nothing small about them. In fact, it’s not an embellishment to say that small businesses are a cornerstone of the American economy, employing almost half of the private workforce.
Small businesses come in all shapes and sizes – a local grocery store, a nimble startup, an auto shop – and that’s why we couldn’t imagine life without them. But with energy being just one of many expenses faced by the commercial sector, finding a reliable source that’s also inexpensive is essential to keeping them up and running. After all, for every business, large and small, every dollar counts.
That’s where natural gas comes in.
Natural gas is cost-effective and burns cleaner than many traditional, commercially used energy sources. This colorless, odorless gas is the cleanest-burning fossil fuel and is the top producer of electricity in America.
Across America, utilities are making the switch to natural gas, allowing them to create cleaner energy at a lower cost by passing the savings on to their small-business customers.
This switch could help small businesses lower their own operation costs and focus on what’s important – providing top-quality goods and services to their customers.
