About the Unity Township Gas Expansion Project

The Unity Township project is the second large expansion project that Peoples has undertaken in Westmoreland County. The scope of the project includes approximately 250 homes in Unity Township. This project scope includes thousands of feet of mainline installation and is located within a mile of the Arnold Palmer Regional Airport. The two anchor communities in this project are Whitney and Hostetter. Many nearby neighbors were already Peoples Natural Gas customers, providing a great opportunity for Peoples to expand from our nearby existing infrastructure. 

The project was approved in the fall of 2016, and Peoples finalized all of the necessary approvals and permits. Construction has begun, and it is our expectation and goal to have natural gas service available for these 250 customers 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 Unity Township and have yet to enroll, please click here

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.

“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.”
