CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Clarksville Gas & Water will observe the national Public Natural Gas Week from Oct. 4-10. This annual nationwide event is intended to build public awareness about the value of having a community-owned natural gas utility.
On Oct. 9, a social-distanced event at the customer service center drive-through at 2215 Madison St. will be open to the public. Free natural gas awareness literature, giveaway bags with a full color 2021 calendar and a packaged lunch will be available for citizens to pick up beginning at 11 a.m. while supplies last.
Clarksville Gas serves more than 29,000 customers and is among approximately 1,000 public natural gas systems serving more than 6 million customers in the nation. These public natural gas utilities are not-for-profit retail distribution entities that are owned by and accountable to the citizens they serve.
Your public natural gas utility is good for the community for many reasons including:
Local Control -- Having a public natural gas system gives a community local control over how gas is provided to homes and businesses.
Competitive Costs -- Public natural gas systems operate as a not-for-profit entity, ensuring fair and competitive rates.
Economic Benefits -- Public natural gas systems play a valuable role in helping communities broaden the tax base, and in turn improve the local economy and increase jobs. Public natural gas systems ensure that local dollars stay at home.
Customer Service -- As a not-for-profit entity, Clarksville Gas is focused on service rather than profits.
“Our team strives daily to provide Clarksville and the five surrounding counties in our service area with the safest, most reliable and economical natural gas service possible,” said Mark Riggins, General Manager. “We genuinely appreciate the opportunity to serve our citizens.”
Clarksville Gas appreciates the support of the community and continues to look forward to bringing safe, reliable natural gas into homes and businesses. As the cleanest burning fossil fuel, natural gas can help America achieve energy security and build a more competitive economy.
