Economic Development

Investing in Illinois: A Nicor Gas System Improvement Initiative is a multi-year infrastructure enhancement program that is expected to foster economic growth while enhancing the safety and reliability of our natural gas delivery and storage systems. From replacing hundreds of miles of pipeline to moving natural gas meters to the outside of homes and businesses, Investing in Illinois accelerates the rate at which we can upgrade our infrastructure that stores and delivers natural gas to our 2.2 million customers in more than 650 communities throughout northern Illinois.
