About Philadelphia Gas Works

PGW: Around our city, Around the clock

Since February 8, 1836, when the first employees of the newly formed Gas Works lit forty-six lights along Second Street, PGW has been serving the fine people of Philadelphia 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Today PGW is the largest municipally owned gas utility in the country. We manage and maintain a system of over 6,000 miles of gas mains and service pipes that deliver an annual 78 billion cubic feet of safe, reliable natural gas to our 500,000 customers each year.

We, like the great city we serve, have a rich, dynamic history that is leading us into a promising, productive future.

“I loved my boss and other people in the company helped me to lear about gas and the safety behind it. I had no idea how things were done in the company and the gas industry was new for me. But, with the people I worked with, they made it great and taught me a lot.”
