Another important benefit for the customers is convenience, because both the electricity and the natural gas customers will receive a one-stop shop. In other words, they will only need to communicate with one company on energy acquisition issues, "says Vidmantas Salietis, Member of the Board of the Lithuanian Gas Supply.
