Businesses are often surprised at how simple it is switching to a lower cost gas plan

We get it. The industry’s dominated by companies that have their own best interest in mind. But when the mission isn’t dictated by stock price or bottom lines, but rather by the desire to provide customers the best value and service, there are no impediments to passing along the greatest possible savings in a deregulated market. Driven to succeed in this fashion is what sets ECA apart from the competition and will allow it to remain a viable source of your savings and, dare we say, happiness.
