The University awarded a contract for Gas Main Extension to Peoples Gas, Light & Coke Company, Chicago, IL, for $880,012.06.
Northeastern Illinois University (NEIU) has been identified by Peoples Gas, Light & Coke Company (Peoples Gas) as a preferred customer for the use of the natural gas distribution lines which extend into four (4) campus buildings and one (1) campus central co-generation and heating plant facility. Currently, NEIU is expanding the campus buildings to include a residential housing building which is scheduled to open prior to the Fall 2016 semester. NEIU wishes to obtain gas service for said premise and for this purpose needs Peoples Gas to construct a gas main extension for the nearest existing gas main with sufficient capacity to serve the needs of the residential housing building, as well as any future buildings associated with the NEIU Decade of Dreams.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the public utility service is regulated.
