Construction of the Cartersville Gas System (CGS) began in 1953, with
the first service being the home of Dollie Cope at 113 Maybelle Street
on May 5, 1954.
Today the system consists of over 315 miles of distribution mains which serve more than 10,000 customers.
The system transported and delivered over 3.6 billion cubic feet of natural gas in 2007
The system was built for an initial cost of $1.1 million nearly fifty years ago
The revenue generated by the Cartersville Gas System helps to fund other city services such as the police, fire and recreation departments.
Cartersville Gas has historically offered natural gas rates that are very competitive when compared to other suppliers. There is also offered a program to persons constructing new homes known as the Gas Advantage Home Program.
Cartersville is one of the 85 cities in Georgia that owns and operates a municipal natural gas system, and is the fifth largest system in the state. Today the system delivers clean, efficient natural gas to residential, commercial and industrial customers in Cartersville, Cassville, Kingston, White and the Dykes Creek area of Floyd County. Natural gas has many more applications than just residential fuel. Industry depends on natural gas as its most economical and cleanest fuel and it is also used as a raw material in the manufacture of paints, explosives, fertilizers, plastics, and medicines, to name a few. In fact, natural gas provides for almost one-third of our total energy needs and is the single largest source of energy produced and consumed in the United States. The Cartersville Gas System stands ready to provide the natural gas service necessary to support continued residential, commercial and industrial growth in Cartersville and Bartow County.
