Elizabethtown Gas to Issue $15 Million Credit to Customers Related to SJI Acquisition

UNION, N.J. – Aug. 27, 2018 – Elizabethtown Gas, is pleased to offer a $15 million credit to all its customers with active accounts as of June 30, 2018, related to the recent acquisition by South Jersey Industries (NYSE: SJI).  

Customers can expect to see the one-time acquisition credit noted as a line item on their September bill, based on terms approved by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU). For residential customers, this equates to a one-time credit of $35.93.

The acquisition credit comes on the heels of the NJBPU approved reduction of Elizabethtown Gas distribution rates totaling $12.1 million, stemming from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, benefiting Elizabethtown Gas’ firm natural gas customers.  

“With the completion of the acquisition of Elizabethtown Gas by SJI, we remain focused on providing safe, reliable, affordable natural gas service,” said Brian MacLean, president of Elizabethtown Gas. “We are pleased to provide this credit to our customers, and look forward to building on our history of exceptional customer service as part of the SJI family.”

The acquisition of Elizabethtown Gas by SJI, completed July 1, 2018, makes SJI the second largest natural gas provider in New Jersey with service to more than 681,000 customers.
