Avangrid adding gas service in Connecticut.

As a part of its commitment to convert 200,000 oil-heat customers to natural gas by 2023, Avangrid said it will soon expand service to Bolton and Coventry. The two adjacent Tolland County communities, which are served by Avangrid's Connecticut Natural Gas, will be the fourth and fifth new service franchises the company has added since Connecticut launched a plan to convert upwards up 300,000 residents and business to natural gas. Other additions include East Hampton, Deep River and Essex.

CNG will spend $1.1 million to install 7 miles of new mains and services in Bolton. Town officials recently signed a contract to bring gas to five municipal buildings and schools, which Avangrid said would save the town $50,000 yearly and provide $30,000 in local taxes from the gas infrastructure.
