“Gas that is lost through leaking pipelines is still paid for by the gas customer.”
As more power plants convert from coal to natural gas and older gas pipelines continue to deteriorate, an adequate supply of natural gas is becoming a major concern.
Leaky gas pipelines are also costing people money! Gas that doesn’t reach the customer is considered lost or unaccounted for, although it is still paid for by the gas customer. Imagine if we charged you for oil that was “lost”!
By sticking with oil heat, and upgrading to high-efficiency, clean-burning oil heating equipment, you can reduce emissions, save energy and keep your heating bills reasonable. And by doing this, you’ll still have us on your side, always willing to go out of our way to keep you warm and safe.
Can any gas company make the same claim—and then back it up?
