Investing in Our Infrastructure
Beginning in January 2016 we will begin a new five-year $150 million investment as part of our natural gas infrastructure replacement plan approved by the Virginia State Corporate Commission. This plan continues the replacement of aging infrastructure across our service territory and recover the costs in a timely manner.
Investing in Safety and Reliability
Our commitment to the safe delivery of natural gas dates back to 1847 when we began operating in the historic city of Petersburg, Virginia. Since then our company has experienced enormous change with one exception: our unwavering commitment to safety and reliability. Our gas infrastructure modernization is our commitment to our customers and the Commonwealth of Virginia - our commitment to always operate a safe and reliable gas distribution system.
Investing in the Communities We Serve
Investing in our infrastructure is also an investment in the communities we serve. By proactively installing new state-of-the-art facilities, we enhance the safety and integrity of our natural gas delivery system. In addition to the operational benefits, this multi-year project benefits Virginia's economy by creating employment opportunities through additional construction-related jobs. A modern and efficient natural gas distribution system also leads to economic development for many communities.
