Nicor Gas is committed to providing customers with increasingly clean, safe, and reliable energy, and is now offering customers another way to live and work more sustainably.
TotalGreen™ is our newest carbon footprint program that offers customers another way to live a more environmentally friendly lifestyle. It combines renewable natural gas credits* with the purchase of carbon offsets to allow you to offset your amount of natural gas-based combustion emissions. Plus, it is conveniently integrated right into your bill.
TotalGreen™ is a voluntary pilot program that allows qualifying Nicor Gas customers to balance their carbon footprint at home by paying an additional charge on their natural gas bill. On average, the cost for single family homes is about $100 a year but varies based on individual usage and plan selection.
*i.e., credits associated with the production of RNG, transferred to Nicor Gas in the form of Renewable Thermal Credits.
Natural gas usage is measured in therms. Because your therm use varies by month, you may have months where the cost of TotalGreen™ is higher than others. To get an idea of what your bill will look like participating in TotalGreen™, use our calculator below. You should have your Nicor Gas bill handy and look for the total monthly therm use! To see an example of a monthly bill, check out our FAQ “How does TotalGreen™ Work?”.
