Giving Forward for a Better Tomorrow

erg-givingWe're an energy company helping to produce the vital resources that allow us to cook our food, heat our homes, and power our cars.

We live here, work here, and raise our families here.

We believe in not just giving back, but giving forward, knowing investment in our community today creates a better tomorrow.

With many worthy causes to support and ERG's focus on long-term, positive effects, we have developed and committed to a strategic giving program to ensure our contributions are fully leveraged.
