Investing in Illinois: A Nicor Gas System Improvement Initiative

Do you ever think about the robust underground pipeline that delivers natural gas to your home?
At Nicor Gas, we don’t just think about this underground pipeline – we design, install, operate and maintain more than 34,000 miles of pipeline infrastructure across northern Illinois. This infrastructure delivers natural gas to warm your home and cook your food while also delivering the clean energy that businesses need to manufacture goods and run large industrial machinery.

To ensure continued safe and reliable delivery of natural gas to the more than 650 northern Illinois communities we serve, Nicor Gas is increasing the level of infrastructure improvements through a program we call Investing in Illinois: A Nicor Gas System Improvement Initiative.

Investing in a Wide Range of Improvements
In 2015, Nicor Gas began accelerating upgrades to many parts of our infrastructure under this program to ensure customers have access to the energy they need. The law that allows us to enhance our infrastructure, the Natural Gas Consumer, Safety & Reliability Act, focuses on increasing public safety by accelerating the repair, rehabilitation and replacement of portions of Illinois’ natural gas distribution system.

Investing in Illinois allows Nicor Gas to replace hundreds of miles of aging natural gas pipeline, move natural gas meters from inside homes and businesses to outside, upgrade natural gas storage systems and refurbish stations that regulate the natural gas pressure in your system.

What This Means For You

As required by Illinois law, the Qualified Infrastructure Charge will be noted as a line item on your monthly Nicor Gas bill. The amount will change from month to month, based on your natural gas consumption and the investment we make under the program. The amounts billed under the Qualified Infrastructure Charge are filed monthly with the Illinois Commerce Commission and will be reviewed by the Commission annually.
