Letter from the President

Dear Valued Customer,

As a consumer, you're always looking for ways to save money when it comes to your home and your monthly utility bills. Sycamore Gas encourages you, if possible, to use a combination of natural gas and electricity in your home to save on future bills. Each form of energy has its own unique, cost-effective advantages.

For your lights, computer, TV, dishwasher, refrigerator, and countless other appliances you use every day, there is no substitute for electricity. But for heating, cooking, and clothes drying, natural gas is your most efficient option. Why?

  • Natural gas appliances lower bills. Natural gas releases heat quickly and easily, while electric heating elements require a comparatively large amount of energy for a smaller amount of heat. Using natural gas for your furnace, water heater, clothes dryer, and range will save you money.
  • Natural gas appliances are more efficient. Natural gas energy is transported from the well to your home, so there is no energy lost in conversion. Electricity is generated from fuel (primarily natural gas, coal, or nuclear). Converting these fuels into electricity and then transmitting leads to a lot of lost energy. In short, natural gas is a better use of natural resources.
  • Natural gas appliances are also environmentally friendly. Natural gas is a cleaner fuel than coal and propane and does not create toxic waste like nuclear power. Using natural gas and electricity together in your home is a smart choice for saving money and energy.

The Sycamore Gas Company is also pleased to offer a rebate program to customers who elect to convert their home to natural gas, upgrade their older natural gas-fired appliances to more efficient models or who elect to purchase natural gas-fired appliances to replace existing appliances powered by other sources of energy.

The number of rebates available is limited, so this offer is on a first-come first-served basis. You may request a rebate for qualifying appliances by submitting the rebate application, and invoice/receipt and proof of payment. Applications must be postmarked no later than 45 days following the purchase and installation of the qualifying equipment. To obtain a Rebate Request Form explaining full details of the offer, please click here or call our office at 812-537-1921.
