Growth Extension Tariff

Making Natural Gas More Available and Affordable
Gas for Homes > Growth Extension Tariff

The UGI Growth Extension Tariff (GET) is designed to provide natural gas service to additional areas which are currently unserved or underserved.

GET Gas makes extending natural gas utility lines to your property more affordable. Rather than making a substantial up-front contribution to cover the cost to extend natural gas main, customers within GET Gas project areas are eligible to opt for a low monthly surcharge over a 10-year-period instead.

Residents or business owners who are interested in the GET Gas program should fill out our Natural Gas Availability Form, call UGI at 800-276-2722, or email getgas@ugi.com and indicate they are interested in obtaining natural gas through the GET Gas program.

How can I benefit from the GET Gas program?

Under the UGI line extension policy, a customer would be required to pay the cost of the main extension prior to construction. GET Gas assumes all customers receiving service from the new facilities will share the cost of the facilities and allows the cost of the extension to be paid over time.

How will UGI select the communities for GET Gas?

Some factors involved in the selection of GET Gas communities include, but are not limited to, proximity to existing gas mains, housing/business density, assumptions related to percentage of households/businesses likely to convert to natural gas based on age and type of heating equipment, planned road restoration/other utility work, permitting fees, etc.

Why doesn’t UGI extend natural gas service to whoever wants it?

UGI’s tariff extension rules protect existing customers from bearing the cost of uneconomic main extensions. Natural gas main extensions typically cost between $500,000 and $1 million per mile, sometimes more. It would be unfair to current customers and contrary to public policy for UGI to extend mains where it is not economically feasible to do so.

What is the monthly surcharge?

Residential Customers pay a $29 fixed charge OR a one-time up-front payment of $2,158.09.

Commercial GET Gas customers pay a $20.03 monthly fixed charge + $1.87 per Mcf for all usage OR a custom one-time up-front payment.

You also have the option to pay off the balance of your contribution at any time.

How much will I save if I convert?

If you select the monthly surcharge, you will pay that amount for 120 months or 10 years.

How can I benefit from the GET Gas program?

Typical savings from conversion will more than cover the GET monthly surcharge payment and provide a reasonable return on equipment conversion costs. You could save over $500 a year taking advantage of the GET Gas program.
