About This Gas Expansion Project:
The Derry (Hillside Group) project is now complete and gas is available to the community! After approving the project in 2015, Peoples began working on the planning and permitting process. This is a unique project that required some unexpected adjustments, but we’re pleased that natural gas is now available to the community. Construction started in September 2015 and our goal to be complete by mid-January 2017 has come to fruition. The scope of the project includes approximately 100 homes in the Hillside neighborhood of Derry Township. The construction plan included the instillation of over 2 miles of new pipeline.
If you’re a resident of the Hillside neighborhood in Derry Township and have yet to enroll, please click here.
If your home is ready for natural gas and you have at least one appliance ready for conversion, please call the Peoples Customer Service department at 1-800-764-0111 to be scheduled for service connection. Please note you should call the Customer Service department only when you are ready for gas service.
If you have any other general questions you can reach our Inside Sales team at 1-866-654-4660.
"I want to thank Peoples Gas for coming to Hillside. Since I am the first customer to have the gas installed in Hillside (Jan. 25th, 2017), I want you to know it is wonderful. Thank you, Peoples Gas, for being here. I have lived in the same house for over 55 years and you made our life better."
- Robert, Derry Hillside Customer
