Natural Gas Industry

Natural gas is delivered to customers in North Carolina by four local distribution companies (LDCs) and eight municipal systems.  The LDCs are regulated by the Commission, which sets their rates and terms of service.  The municipalities are not subject to the jurisdiction of the Commission.  If you have a question about a municipal gas system’s rates and terms of service, you should contact it directly.

The map provided at the following link below shows the service territories of the four LDCs (Frontier Energy – purple, Piedmont Natural Gas – green, PSNC Energy – yellow, and Toccoa – orange):
