Growth Extension Tariff
Making Natural Gas More Available and Affordable
The UGI Growth Extension Tariff (GET) is an innovative pilot program designed to provide natural gas service to regions without access today. The pilot program is available to homeowners and businesses within our gas divisions (UGI South, UGI North and UGI Central).
How GET Gas works
GET Gas makes extending natural gas utility lines to your property more affordable. Customers pay a monthly surcharge over a 10-year-period to cover the cost of the main and service extension rather than making a substantial up-front contribution. Plus, the typical GET Gas customer will be able to use a portion of the savings generated from converting to natural gas to significantly offset the surcharge.
If you have looked at natural gas service in the past and it was not affordable, GET Gas may be an alternative for you. Since GET Gas is a pilot program, UGI will not be able to reach all areas or communities that are potential candidates for GET Gas. And, not all areas qualify for the pilot program.
Some factors that are considered for GET Gas qualification include:
- Proximity to existing gas mains
- Housing and business density
- Percentage of households and businesses likely to convert to natural gas
- Road restoration and permitting fees
- Funding available under the pilot program
