Washington Gas, a subsidiary of WGL Holdings Inc., began providing natural gas service to residents and businesses in Petersville, Md, located in Frederick county, the company announced on Thursday.
The Petersville deal also includes service to the Brunswick area.
The project has a planned 10-year build out that will provide service to approximately 1,505 mixed use units including residential and commercial customers.
Approximately 200 residential units are currently being converted from propane to natural gas.
The project began in 2009 and was the culmination of a five-year collaborative effort between Washington Gas, Pleasants Development Company and Petersville municipal leaders.
“It’s exciting to see natural gas service expanded into the greater Brunswick area, which will help local residents and businesses reduce their energy costs,” said Maryland Delegate for Frederick and Washington Counties Michael J. Hough (R).
“Having this resource available makes the Brunswick area even more attractive to businesses looking to locate in this region,” Hough added.
