Free connection for switching to natural gas!
The City of Summerville, in conjunction with the Municipal Gas Authority of Georgia, is sponsoring incentives to either switch over to natural gas or connect to it. If a potential customer does not have natural gas, the City will give them a free connection, provided they install gas heat and gas hot water. For more information contact Tony Carroll at 706-859-0907.
