Delmarva Power Prepares for Natural Gas Expansion
NEWARK, Del. - The Delaware Public Service Commission (DPSC) today approved changes to the natural gas tariff governing Delmarva Power's ability to deliver natural gas to more than 120,000 customers.The approved changes will make it more affordable for interested customers within Delmarva Power's natural gas service territory to convert to natural gas service for their home-heating needs.In response to DPSC's approval, Delmarva Power will work to implement the tariff changes to provide natural gas service to more customers, including customer communications, public announcements, community outreach and continued coordination with state and local partners. Implementing the tariff changes will be a multi-phase, long-term project."We believe that more Delaware residents should have choices in meeting their energy needs and that those choices should be based upon the current state of energy markets in Delaware," said Gary Stockbridge, president, Delmarva Power. "We are pleased to make these tariff changes, which will make natural gas available to more customers who may wish to convert to it as an alternate energy source."For additional information please visit www.delmarva.com, and click the Natural Gas tab on the homepage.
