MLGW News Release
MLGW celebrates Public Natural Gas Week
October 10, 2019
In addition to Customer Service Week and Public Power Week, Memphis Light, Gas and Water is also taking part in Public Natural Gas Week from October 6 to 12. The annual observance builds awareness about the value of having a community-owned natural gas utility.

There are multiple benefits to publicly owned natural gas utilities.

 They are locally controlled. Decisions are made through citizen participation by customers who understand local issues.

 Costs remain competitive. Public natural gas utilities do not face pressure to pay stockholders.

 Publicly owned natural gas utilities positively impact local economies by providing jobs and keeping local dollars at home.

 There’s a bigger focus on customer service. Public natural gas systems are integral parts of a community.

MLGW looks forward to continuing to bring safe, reliable natural gas into your homes and businesses at low rates (see our Comparative Rate Survey at As the cleanest burning fossil fuel, natural gas can help us achieve energy security and build a more competitive economy.
