Natural Gas Lights Philadelphia
On February 8, 1836, the first municipally owned natural gas
distribution company, Gas Works, lit 46 natural gas lights in Philadelphia.
The lights were located on Second Street.
Today Philadelphia Gas Works (PGW) is the largest municipally
owned gas utility company in the United States as well as the Nation’s largest
liquefied natural gas storage facility. PGW maintains over 6,000 miles of gas
mains and serves more than 500,000 private and 19,000 industrial and commercial
customers. With more customers than any other municipally owned gas utility
company in the U.S., Philadelphia Gas Works utilizes EWN services to keep
approximately 900 of their 1,600 employees in compliance with the DOT/PHMSA/OPS
49 CFR 192 pipeline safety regulations.
ENERGY worldnet, Inc. is proud to partner with Philadelphia Gas Works. We
