Special Payment Arrangements

In response to COVID-19, Nicor Gas expanded its payment arrangement options for commercial customers. Now, customers can enroll in a payment arrangement with no down payment, and split the remaining balance into nine equal monthly payments. Customers can enroll in a payment arrangement once every 12 months. Take advantage of these special terms now.
