Our Gas Services Throughout the Years
In 1997, we completed the construction of a 10-inch-high pressure main line connecting with the Transcontinental Pipeline near Alexander City. This project gave us a competitive advantage in purchasing and transporting our natural gas requirements. Since then, we have proudly utilized a Monthly Purchased Gas Adjustment to flow through changes related to our purchased gas cost.
In May 2004, we began providing services to a new electric generating plant owned by AMEA. This 97 MW plant operates during the summer with a peak demand of 16,500 MMBtu. The plant aims to enhance our annual load factor with a historical winter peak.
Beginning in May 2004, SUB will provide interruptible natural gas service to a new electric generating plant owned by the Alabama Municipal Electric Authority (AMEA). This 97 MW plant will operate in the summer and have a peak day demand of 16,500 MMBtu.
