UGI will make gas conversions easier

UGI received approval for a gas pilot program from the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission. The program called GET Gas, which stands for Growth Extension Tariff, is funded at $15 million a year for the next five years.

PUC states that the program will help customers fund their conversion by providing up to $10,000 per customer project and the money will be paid back over a 10 year period. The payments will appear as surcharge on their monthly bills.

GET Gas, will initially finance gas line extensions, with requirements being in neighborhoods where the cost is about $15,000 per project and about the homes can reasonably be expected to convert within the next five years.

PA, being the second largest natural gas producer due to the Marcellus Shale, combined with UGI's pilot program, will allow the state and company to benefit from the record number of request for conversion to natural gas from all other types of fuel. Everyone believes that this type of program will fuel demand (no pun intended) and further natural gas usage.
