STATEMENT OF UGI UTILITIES
UGI is aware of today’s Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) vote on a motion regarding the Joint Settlement related to the PUC Staff Complaint on the explosion that occurred on February 9, 2011 in Allentown, PA. UGI again expresses its deepest sympathies to the Hall and Cruz families who lost loved ones, and to all members of the Allentown community who were affected by the incident.
UGI will review the language of the Motion and Tentative PUC Order and provide its response within the indicated time-frame.
UGI has continuously focused on an infrastructure improvement process, and has accelerated its replacement of natural gas pipelines made of non-contemporary materials. UGI plans to continue to work collaboratively with the PUC to ensure the safe delivery of energy to UGI’s customers, and the many communities it serves.
