Dekalb-Cherokee Gas offers some 6500 customers in DeKalb, Cherokee and Etowah counties the most economical and reliable energy value available. With safe, clean-burning natural gas our customers, both residential and industrial, enjoy this area's best energy value. But the commitment to our customers doesn't end with just that.
DeKalb-Cherokee Gas' customers are offered further possibilities for savings and convenience. Two of our highly successful programs offer residential customers a $300 rebate on Rinnai tankless or tank-type water heaters and low-interest loans to purchase natural gas appliances and central heating and cooling systems.
Loans through DeKalb-Cherokee Gas are available for the purchase of natural gas appliances like gas ranges, gas dryers, gas grills, gas logs and fireplace units, gas lights, gas space and zone heaters, and gas furnaces. We'll even finance a central heating and cooling unit (gas heat/electric air conditioning). Now you can have the gas appliances of your choice and pay back the loan on your monthly gas bill.
