For homes and small businesses to large pharmaceuticals, manufacturing industries, natural gas fired power generation and cargo terminals along the Delaware Valley, energy constraints have led to higher energy costs while stifling economic growth.
Adelphia Gateway and the increased infrastructure functionality it offers will introduce new, competitively priced, clean burning natural gas supply to meet existing and growing demand in the Greater Philadelphia area. This investment to expand the transport of essential chemical components for everyday products will help attract new manufacturers and natural gas users to the region.
The repurposing of existing infrastructure by Adelphia Gateway signals a commitment to make the Greater Philadelphia region a globally recognized 21st century energy hub. By developing an existing infrastructure, Adelphia Gateway increases the availability of competitively-priced regionally produced natural gas. Homeowners will realize lower energy bills. Businesses become more competitive. And new industries are attracted to the region, driving job growth and economic strength.
Job Growth for Greater Philadelphia
This modernized repurposed infrastructure creates increased access to domestic energy necessary for the greater Philadelphia area to become more energy competitive and reach its full economic growth potential. Adelphia Gateway provides an opportunity to spur this growth by helping businesses and manufacturers expand their operations and attracting new businesses to the region.
This pipeline is intended to have delivery interconnects that will benefit industrial end users, including utility companies. Local distribution companies deliver natural gas to homes and businesses through underground main and utility service lines, which make up some of the more than 2.5 million miles of underground pipeline in the United States.
Natural gas-powered electric generation facilities along the pipeline will be able to access additional natural gas supply and benefit from a new, competitively-priced energy source in the region.
