About Mercury Energy
Who is Mercury Energy?
Mercury Energy is a natural gas service provider here in Ohio, offering deregulated prices with flexible plan options, allowing customers to choose a natural gas plan that works for them.
What is deregulation?
The State of Ohio has deregulated the energy industry in an effort to reduce consumer prices by having companies compete for your business.
Are you affiliated with my local utility?
We are not affiliated with your local utility but rather are strategic partners. The utility is responsible for creating your energy and maintaining all the infrastructure used to deliver it to your home. We purchase energy from competing markets allowing us to get you a better price.
Why should I choose Mercury Energy?
Price. Our value proposition is price and we deliver that wrapped in a customer-friendly package.
What are the hours of operations for Mercury Energy customer service?
9am – 5pm EST.
How will I be billed?
You will receive an invoice by mail to the address registered in the agreement. The energy supplier will remain on the bill.
Is it necessary to notify the utility?
We will notify your utility on your behalf. Magic.
When will Mercury Energy appear as the provider?
When you transact into a service agreement with Mercury, you will see our logo on your bill.
Distribution and transmission charges?
These are fees and charges which the utility passes to you as a citizen in its jurisdiction to maintain the infrastructure in place to deliver you your natural gas. These are fees which have been approved to be transferred by the Public Utility Commission of Ohio – and we have no control over these costs, unfortunately.

I’m moving, how do I transfer my existing service to my new address?
If you are moving to an address that is within the service area of your utility supplier, please contact us so we can continue providing you uninterrupted service. If the address is outside of your utility’s service area, then your agreement with us will be nullified.
