Gas utilities are often multi-state, multi-national, publicly-held corporations that enjoy monopoly-type control and are largely shielded from competition. Where would my supply of natural gas come from?
Headquartered in New Haven, Connecticut, UIL Holdings Corporation is a diversified energy delivery company serving approximately 727,000 electric and natural gas utility customers in 67 communities across two states, with combined total assets of over $5 billion.
Depending on where you live, your supply of natural gas will be delivered by The Southern Connecticut Gas Company (SCG), Connecticut Natural Gas Corporation (CNG) or Berkshire Gas. Each of these locally-based companies is more than 100 years old and owned by Connecticut-based UIL Holdings, also the parent company for The United Illuminating Company (UI).
UI provides for the transmission and delivery of electricity and other energy-related services for Connecticut's Greater New Haven and Bridgeport areas. SCG and CNG are natural gas distribution companies that serve customers in Connecticut, while Berkshire Gas serves natural gas customers in western Massachusetts.
