Pennsylvania has historically been a tremendous leader in energy.
-Gene Barr – President & CEO of Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry
The Commonwealth has a very rich history of innovation and a reputation as an energy leader. It includes the Drake Well, the first commercial oil well in the United States and a long history with anthracite coal in the northeastern region, but continues today with cutting-edge technology at Carnegie Mellon University around biology-powered fuel cells. And now, the natural gas being produced from the Marcellus and Utica shales are once again changing the energy landscape.
Not to mention all of the local economic growth as the natural gas infrastructure in Pennsylvania is expanded to new areas – giving residents and companies the ability to reinvest dollars normally spent paying their energy bills.
