This fall is a special time for us at PSNC Energy. In September, we marked our 75th year of operations. While we started out in the manufactured gas business, we’ve been a natural gas distribution company for the last six decades.
Much has changed across our 28-county service area since 1938. Tremendous growth has occurred throughout our Raleigh, Durham, Gastonia and Asheville regions, particularly in the last 30 years, and we’ve grown right along with them. In fact, earlier this year we added our 500,000th customer.
Over the years, we’ve worked to introduce more products and services that not only enhance your home but can also help you save energy. In this issue of Comforts of Home®, we provide a quick look at what’s new in using natural gas appliances for outdoor living, plus you can learn more about the benefits of using a space heater for those rooms that tend to be colder than the rest of your house.
Just keeping the heat on can be a challenge for many families in the communities we serve. That’s why we continue to sponsor The Salvation Army Heat Care Fund. This fall, in honor of our 75th anniversary, we’re contributing $75,000 to Heat Care. Many of you support Heat Care, and we appreciate your generosity. If you’re not familiar with Heat Care, I’d encourage you to visit psncenergy.com/heatcare.
As I said before, we’ve got 75 years of experience under our belt now. Like any successful company, we’ve looked for ways to improve our services in order to meet the changing needs of our public.
Yet our dedication to customer service is unchanged. It’s rooted in our company values and will remain as constant as our commitment to providing you with safe and reliable natural gas service.
Have a great fall.
President and Chief Operating Officer
