Vermont Gas completes pipeline to Addison County.
The 41-mile Vermont Gas pipeline extension into Addison County is finished, the utility announced recently, after over three years, $165 million and countless protests. According to a report in the Burlington Free Press, Don Rendall, president and CEO of Vermont Gas, said four business customers in Middlebury are connected to natural gas service provided by the pipeline extension.
"Now that the project is completed and we're fully commissioned, we'll be rolling out the service to families and businesses throughout Middlebury," Rendall said. "We've got a lot of folks who have already let us know they're interested and we look forward to having several hundred customers up and running by next heating season."
Initially, natural gas service will be available only in Middlebury, but Rendall said Vermont Gas will extend service to other towns along the pipeline's route, such as Vergennes, New Haven and Bristol. He said ultimately the pipeline extension will serve as many as 4,000 families and businesses in Addison County.
