State officials will decide whether AGL Resources Inc. can collect $275 million from customers to replace plastic pipelines. The Public Service Commission is set to vote Thursday on an agreement that would let the utility start replacing some 756 miles of the oldest plastic pipeline in its system. Natural gas customers would finance the effort by paying $1.29 per month.
The state Public Service Commission has approved spending $10 million to help low-income residents pay their heating bills. The money comes from a fund Atlanta Gas Light uses to extend pipelines to where homes and businesses are being built. The PSC asked AGL to curb its 2012 project requests to make the heating assistance available.
State officials are considering a proposal that could open more natural gas refueling stations on Georgia's highways. Atlanta Gas Light has asked the state Public Service Commission to tap into a government fund to help pay for ten to 12 new stations. But they wouldn't be for the general public.
Savannah city officials didn't get the answers they wanted at a public hearing on a proposal to truck liquified natural gas through the city. It was the second meeting in three months on a plan that could send up to 58 trucks a day loaded with hazardous LNG through city neighborhoods.
