Tips and programs are available to help you conserve energy to lower your bill.

Cooler weather. Higher gas usage.

Natural Gas Prices are Increasing

Natural gas prices are increasing by as much as an average of 30% nationwide, according to Federal officials. Coupled with the increased use of gas to heat homes during the cold months, Southwest Gas customers may see higher natural gas bills this winter. However, natural gas is still expected to remain one of the lowest utility bills customers will face each month.

Southwest Gas Does Not Profit from the Cost of Natural Gas

Southwest Gas purchases natural gas on behalf of customers from the commercial market and passes the cost straight through to customers with no markup or profit. Our customers pay what we pay.  

Programs and Tips to help you

We’re here to help by offering many programs to customers including Equal Payment Plan, financial assistance programs and flexible payment plans. 
 
  • Change air filters regularly (at least every one-to-three months).
