Critical Commentary

PGW's proposed green energy pilot, which would add Renewable Natural Gas produced from landfills or farm waste into it's natural gas mix, was rejected by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission, stating that the pilot would violate state law that requires state-regulated utilities to procure least-cost energy, and conflicts with their obligation to lower gas costs. The RNG would have cost as much as $500,000 a year and would constitute less than 1% of PGW's gas mix if approved.
