IGU to meet with North Pole homeowners, businesses
Project Delivery team to discuss build-out plans for Phase 1
Fairbanks, AK – The Interior Gas Utility will hold a neighborhood meeting at the Hotel North Pole on Monday, August 25th from 5:00pm to 7:00pm to discuss the natural gas distribution project that will soon be available to homeowners and businesses in North Pole.
The Phase 1 area of the project begins at Hurst Road in North Pole, and runs approximately 2.5 miles south and includes the majority of the City of North Pole. Once Phase 1 is completed, the Utility plans to extend service to other locations in the Interior.
“This is a great opportunity for homeowners in the Interior to come learn more about the cost-savings and benefits associated with heating their homes with natural gas,” said David Prusak, a project manager for the Interior Gas Utility. “It’s also a time to ask and answer questions and to learn more about the positive economic impacts this project will bring to not only individual homeowners, but to our community as a whole.”
Proposed schedules begin Phase 1 construction as soon as the summer of 2015 and plans call for up to 80 miles of pipe to be laid during that time. The consulting RFP for this Phase was released in May.

The IGU is guided by the mission of “providing low cost, natural gas to the most people possible as soon as possible” within Interior Alaska. On December 20, 2013, the IGU was granted a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity to serve the area surrounding the City of Fairbanks as a natural gas utility.
