Piedmont Natural Gas Co. Inc. Key Developments

Piedmont Natural Gas Opens New Fayetteville Facility; Plans to Relocate its Compressed Natural Gas Refueling Station to the Site from its Existing Wilkes Road Location

Piedmont Natural Gas announced the opening of a new Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED)-eligible facility to house Piedmont's customer contact center and resource center serving the Fayetteville area. In addition to the customer contact center and resource center, the new facility also includes space for training, a fabrication shop and warehouse. A 9,000-square-foot utility building and storage shed are also located on the site, and Piedmont plans to relocate a compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling station to the site from its existing Wilkes Road location. Piedmont intends to pursue LEED certification for the facility. For the Fayetteville project, Piedmont opted for the inherently more sustainable choice of renovating an existing structure rather than new construction, reusing and recycling building materials when possible and reducing raw material usage. Additional design elements that contribute to the project's sustainability include maximizing open space and preserving existing wetlands on the 18-acre site, using a natural gas-driven heat pump to reduce energy use, and incorporating energy-efficient fixtures to reduce water and electricity use.

North Carolina Utilities Commission Issues Order on Piedmont Natural Gas

The North Carolina Utilities Commission issued the order involving Piedmont Natural Gas on approving stipulation in Docket Nos. G-9, Subs 631 and 642 approving changes: In the matter of application of Piedmont Natural Gas Company Inc., for approval of annual adjustment of rates under appendix E of its service regulations. On February 14, 2017, in Docket Nos. G-9, Subs 642 and 697, the public staff filed a motion requesting that the Commission extend to March 1, 2017, the public staff's time to file a report regarding Piedmont's most recent IMR Report, filed by Piedmont on October 31, 2016, and extend Piedmont's time to respond to March 15, 2017. In summary, the public staff states that it has been working diligently on its report, but it needs additional time to finalize the report. Further, the public staff states that Piedmont does not object to the granting of the extensions of time. Based on the public staff's motion and the record, the Chairman finds good cause to extend the date for the public staff and other intervenors to file a report regarding Piedmont's most recent IMR Report to March 1, 2017, and to extend the date for Piedmont to file a response to March 15, 2017.
