Clarksville, TN – The Clarksville Gas and Water Department (CGW) will observe the national Public Natural Gas Week, on Friday, October 8th, 2021.
This annual event is celebrated across the nation to build public awareness about the value of having a community-owned natural gas utility.
Clarksville Gas delivered over 4.39 billion cubic feet of natural gas to over 28,000 customers in fiscal year 2021 and is among approximately 1,000 public natural gas systems serving more than 6 million customers in the nation. These public natural gas utilities are not-for-profit retail distribution entities that are owned by and accountable to the citizens they serve.
Your public natural gas utility is good for the community for many reasons including:
- Local Control: Having a public natural gas system gives a community local control over how gas is provided to homes and businesses. Decisions are made through citizen participation instead of being made in a distant city by people who do not understand local issues and who are primarily focused on profits instead of service.
- Competitive Costs: In order to offer fair and competitive rates, public natural gas systems operate as a not-for-profit entity. Public natural gas systems do not face pressure to pay dividends to stockholders.
- Economic Benefits: As a public natural gas system, we play a valuable role in helping communities broaden its tax base, and in turn improve the local economy and increase jobs. Public natural gas systems ensure that local dollars stay at home.
- Customer Service: As a not-for-profit entity, we focus on service, rather than profits. Public natural gas systems are an integral part of a community. We maintain a close relationship with our customers, and as a result, we are successful in meeting our customers’ needs.
“Clarksville Gas prides itself in delivering the most reliable natural gas service safely to the citizens of Clarksville-Montgomery County and to the five surrounding counties in our service area at an economical price,” General Manager Mark Riggins said. “We sincerely appreciate the opportunity to serve our citizens.”
