As you might know, much of Cape Cod has been under a moratorium for new gas services for the last year or two.  This week, National Grid provided an update on their construction plans!  National Grid will begin construction on new pipelines in 5 towns as early as November 2016, and are looking at a completion date of early 2019.  

Currently, if you live in Dennis, Chatham, Brewster, Orleans, Easthan and Harwich, you are unable to connect to existing gas mains for new homes or additions, with the exception of new connections for outdoor grills or emergency generators.  This has been difficult for builders, and homeowners alike, as many people have had to install large above ground or underground propane tanks on their property.  

Bottom line - it looks like things are underway and the end is in sight!
