Natural Gas

Natural Gas
Do you know why natural gas smells so bad? We made it that way. By adding mercaptan, a harmless odorant giving off a sulfur-like smell, it’s our hope that you take it seriously. Get out of the house. Leave. Move far, far away. Once your whole family’s out, call Xcel Energy at 1-800-895-2999 or 9-1-1 in an emergency.
