Construction slated this summer will be a first step toward making natural gas available as a heating fuel in North Pole. KUAC’s Dan Bross has more on the distribution system being put in by the North Star Borough run Interior Gas Utility.
Contractors and others attend a "pre-bid" meeting held by the Interior Gas Utility Tuesday.
The Interior Gas Utility has laid out a plan for getting natural gas to thousands of homes in North Pole and other outlying areas of Fairbanks. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, the non-profit public utilities plan covers more than 2 hundred million dollars of work, spread over six years.
The Interior Gas Utility is laying out a plan of action, following the state granting the Fairbanks North Star Borough entity’s request to supply natural gas to currently un-served areas of town. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, getting natural gas to more neighborhoods is a step toward lowering energy bills and reducing emissions.
