I don’t know if natural gas truly is the bridge between our dirty fuel past and a green energy future. But I’m increasingly convinced that mobile payments companies like Check are the bridge between our dirty cash past and a future free of paper payments.

Check announced today that it has signed yet another agreement with a major utility company to allow customers to pay their bills via the company’s mobile app. Kathleen Kerr, VP for customer service at New Jersey Natural Gas, said, “many of (our customers) already use Check’s app … So it is a natural next step for us to learn with Check.”

Check’s interest in utility companies and their customers is not new. Back in October the company surveyed more than 50 utility companies as part of what now is clearly an effort to target the industry as a potential customer base. Check currently has relationships with utility companies such as Desert Water Agency, Irvine Ranch Water District, and Alltel.
The Check app is available on both iOS and Android. Check was launched in 2008 and is headquartered in Palo Alto, California. The company’s mobile app is used by more than 10 million bill payers around the country.
