Nashville Gas Changing Name to Piedmont Gas

Yes that right! After 23 years, Nashville Gas is changing from their parent company's name to the name of Piedmont Gas. I understand that customers will soon receive the attached letter from the Tom Skains, CEO and President informing them of the name change. Also attached is the Ad that I understand will run in this Sunday's paper. The only thing that will not change, for now, is the rates. Thank goodness! I am sure all will be fine if you have made your utility payment to Nashville Gas. Surely Piedmont will accept it. Just trying to keep my community updated. Vivian Wilhoite Dear Valued Customer: On behalf of Piedmont Natural Gas, the parent company of Nashville Gas, thank you for choosing us to provide you with clean, reliable and efficient natural gas for your home or business. We know that you have an energy choice and value you as our customer. I’m writing you today to make you aware of an upcoming change in the Nashville Gas name. Beginning later this month, we will start the process of changing the name of Nashville Gas to Piedmont Natural Gas. Piedmont Natural Gas acquired Nashville Gas Company in 1985. At that time, Nashville Gas served approximately 67,000 customers while Piedmont provided natural gas service to nearly 220,000 customers in North Carolina and South Carolina. Today, with more than one million natural gas customers in three states, nearly 1,900 employees and more than 24,000 miles of distribution and transmission pipelines, Piedmont Natural Gas is the second largest natural gas distribution company in the Southeast and one of the fastest growing natural gas distribution companies in the United States. In the weeks ahead, our fleet of service trucks and construction vehicles, employee uniforms, our bills and correspondence, and even our website will begin displaying the new Piedmont Natural Gas name and logo. These changes reflect the fact that all of us at Piedmont, no matter which state or which community we happen to be in, share a common set of core values, a commitment to providing “best-in-class” service to our customers, and a dedication to the communities we are privileged to serve. We are truly one company with one name. Piedmont Natural Gas. Again, we thank you for being our customer and for selecting clean, reliable and efficient natural gas as your energy choice. Thomas E. Skains Chairman, President and CEO Piedmont Natural Gas
