Leatherstocking expands natural gas distribution

The company is a partnership between Corning Gas and Mirabito Energy Products

MONTROSE, PA - Leatherstocking Gas Company is touting the savings it's providing its customers as it expands its natural gas distribution service in Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania.

The company, which is a partnership between Corning Gas and Mirabito Energy Products, has signed up 270 customers ranging from the Endless Mountains Hospital and Montrose High School to the Meadow at Tiffany Pines and individual homes.

Leatherstocking takes gas fracked in Susquehanna by Cabot Oil and Gas directly from a Williams pipeline.

Bridgewater Township resident John Cherundolo made the investment to change his piping from propane to natural gas.

"Which was a great expense but the way I figured it, sooner or later it's going to pay for itself. Little did I realize it would only take about 15 months to realize the savings of conversion from propane to the natural gas," he said.

The Leatherstocking network was completed in time to supply gas to the Meadow at Tiffany Pines when it opened a year ago.

Gene and Jenny Paumgardhen say they like the service.

Developer Dennis Phelps said residents save 30 to 35 percent on their heating bills.

"What we're about is helping low-income seniors, working families. Gas in this development assists people to be self-sufficient and to be vibrant," said Phelps.

Leatherstocking is already taking steps to provide natural gas to Wyalusing with plans to move into Great Bend and Halstead.

Company officials said they're also working on obtaining permits to extend service into the Town of Windsor in New York.
