About the Colver Gas Expansion Project

The Colver project continues Peoples commitment to provide natural gas service to areas that are committed to being good community partners. The residents in Colver were very supportive of the expansion proposal, and responded with great enrollment numbers. As a result, the project was approved in the fall of 2016. 

Peoples is currently in the process of finalizing all of the necessary approvals and permits and construction is expected to start within the next few weeks. The project will include the construction of over 4 miles of new pipeline. When complete, 400 homes in Colver will have access to clean, safe and reliable natural gas. A project of this size will take a number of months to complete, but it is our expectation and goal to have natural gas service available for the town of Colver by the winter of 2017. 

We hope residents will choose to make the switch to natural gas and begin to prepare their homes for conversion. If you’re a resident in Colver and have yet to enroll, please click here

“As a member of a local Borough Council, I encourage other communities to contact Peoples and explore the benefits of natural gas. Our town is excited that we were one of the first selected for Peoples’ expansion program. Natural gas service will be a real shot in the arm for our community, especially for future economic development opportunities.”

What are the benefits of natural gas?

  • Natural gas has the lowest carbon footprint of all fossil fuels.
  • Homes and businesses with natural gas have higher property values.
  • Natural gas has consistently been priced lower than other energy sources.
  • Natural gas is reliable – it’s there when you need it.  You never have to fill tanks or worry about running out.
  • You can pay as you go based upon your usage – a budget plan also available.
  • Natural gas has environmental benefits.
  • Natural gas is a highly efficient form of energy.
  • When natural gas replaces a less environmentally friendly fuel, it can help address a number of environmental concerns, such as smog, acid rain and greenhouse gas emissions.
  • How do I prepare my home for gas?

    In order to convert an existing home to natural gas—where service is not currently available—there are several steps you have to take. Feel free to give us a call and one of our trained experts can walk you through this process.
