As America looks to its energy future, natural gas holds more promise than ever. Abundant, clean, and domestically supplied, natural gas offers a roadmap to where the U.S. energy industry must travel. Gas remains the primary source of heat, hot water and cooking for U.S. homes and businesses. And in the years to come, we’re going to rely on natural gas more and more. With the price at historic lows, the laws of economics will insist on it.
We need to prepare by creating a natural gas industry that is ready for the future. That means investing in our pipeline systems. Such an infrastructure investment will make delivery safer and more reliable. It will be better for the environment, and it will create jobs.
But Illinois’ current regulatory environment is unpredictable, outdated and inefficient, inhibiting investment. Illinois natural gas utilities need a legislative solution to have the continued confidence to invest in system upgrades. Businesses and labor organizations from across the state support legislation that will enable utilities to continue modernizing the state’s natural gas systems.
