Good news for Water Gas & Light. On Thursday, Water Gas & Light announced a reduction in rates with Southern Natural Gas which is the interstate pipeline.
Beginning September 1st, 2013 Water Gas & Light received a seven percent reduction which is about $14,000 a month or a dollar a customer per month.
Officials say this is the first time rates have gone down in years, and so they're taking advantage of the opportunity.
WG&L Finance Director John Vansant III says, "it's always good when a company can save money so this is a great move for us."
Vansant adds that on November 1, 2015 WG&L will get an extra reduction in rates of four percent.
