Economic Impact

Most people don’t give much thought to underground natural gas pipelines, so it is easy to take them for granted. However, we all benefit from the reliable energy they provide, whether it is providing gas to heat your home or generating electricity to keep your lights on. Interstate transmission pipelines make up an efficient energy delivery network that keeps our country running.

The Atlantic Sunrise pipeline project will have significant positive impacts on local economies where construction occurs and beyond. Not only will construction create job opportunities, but the development is expected to increase economic activity by $1.6 billion in project regions.

While the zip code you entered is outside the project area, the Atlantic Sunrise pipeline has an economic impact beyond the project area by providing consumers along the East Coast with access to reliable, cost-effective natural gas supply. In fact, access to reliable, cost-effective natural gas supply is powering an American manufacturing revolution while also lowering the energy costs of regular consumers who use this energy to cook meals and power their homes. This project, for instance, would provide enough natural gas to meet the daily needs of more than 7 million American homes. Estimates made by researchers at The Pennsylvania State University forecast the Atlantic Sunrise project to result in an estimated $1.6 billion increase economic activity in the project area during construction.
