Natural gas is the most abundant, clean and reliable fuel source for everything from heating individual homes to generating much of the nation’s electricity. While Pennsylvania continues to produce record volumes of natural gas, insufficient pipeline capacity is limiting access to the state’s natural gas supplies. That’s where Atlantic Sunrise comes in.
What it means for Consumers
Affordable Consumer Costs
Pipeline infrastructure like Atlantic Sunrise creates consumer access to an abundant supply of clean, affordable energy, further reducing energy costs for consumers.
Added Local Investment
Moving more natural gas from Pennsylvania to consumers will increase activity, investment and job creation within the state. Approximately 8,000 jobs and an associated $870 million in economic value will be added during the construction period alone.
Cleaner Burning Fuel
Growing domestic production of energy resources and the pipelines that transport them are creating opportunities to access a clean-burning, low emissions energy resource — natural gas.
Support for Renewables
Our country’s ability to incorporate more wind and solar energy into the power mix is dependent on a reliable natural gas supply that can quickly and cost-effectively pick up the slack when the sun doesn’t shine or the wind doesn’t blow.
We Keep Farmers Farming
Williams operates thousands of miles of pipelines buried under agricultural land across the U.S. For the Atlantic Sunrise project we are embracing construction practices which protect and reclaim the land back to prior production yields as soon as possible.
