West Wyoming, PA (May 2, 2013) – UGI-Penn Natural Gas (UGI-PNG) is pleased to participate in today’s Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) Public Input Hearing. Today’s Public Input Hearing focuses on a specific question: are enclosures planned for the UGI-PNG West Wyoming gate station structures that are not subject to the local zoning?
UGI-PNG welcomes input from the public on this question. We are also interested to hear input on other issues from our customers and from community residents. UGI has already responded on the record to a number of questions received from West Wyoming Borough officials and from members of the community.
UGI-PNG actively seeks out opportunities to explore lower-cost natural gas supply alternatives, including locally-produced supplies. Because these supplies are in close proximity, gas delivered through the proposed West Wyoming Gate Station will allow UGI-PNG customers to realize savings of approximately $1 million from December 1, 2013 through July 31, 2015, and $10 million from August 1, 2015 through October 31, 2020, for a total savings of $11 million.
